Title • Introduction • First image • Lightbox • Checklist • Resources • PhV 



The ways in which our canine companions have been shown in photography has changed over the years from the dog as a hunting aid and family friend of the mid-nineteenth century through the humorous images by Jacques-Henri Lartigue, Elliott Erwitt and William Wegman. The darker side of pets was not examined until the last twenty years and Keith Carter, Giacomo Brunelli and Tony Mendoza all show a more edgy side rather than the overly simplistic loyal and sentimental. For those who want to understand how dogs see humans read the short story "To Build a Fire" by Jack London (published 1908) - Full text.
To add to this series I‘m interested in:
  • Historically significant dogs
  • Nineteenth century champions and shows
  • Dogs involved in heroic acts
  • Working dogs of all types
  • Unusual dog portraits of all periods
  • Dogs in bizarre attire
  • Dog funerals and remembrances
If you have examples that might be appropriate so we can improve this online exhibition please let me know.
