One of my photographic heroes, Elliott Erwitt. single-handedly expanded the genre of environmental portraiture to include man’s best friends. Hundreds of his wonderful and humorous images communicate the beauty, character and a whole range of emotions of our canine companions. In a slightly different approach, I tend to focus on candid “canine street photography”. In this series, I wanted to show how well dogs adapted to living with us in our urban environment. What strikes me most is just how human-like urban dogs have become in their everyday existence, emotional responses, interactions with us humans and other dogs. I hope these photos will make you feel the same way.
6 images from this series were published in a book “Seeing in Sixes” (LensWork, 2016).
