NatureThe 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.
