All tagged dogs on street
As a Feature Shoot fan, I am always surprised by the fabulous talent I come across, one discovery being Ibarionex Perello, a famed photographer, lecturer and professor. I asked him his relationship to taking photos of dogs and this is what he shared, "I have always loved dogs. After I left for college, I was without a dog for years and it wasn't until my wife and I moved into our first house that I was able to have a dog in my life again. I think having dogs has made me that much more sensitive to them as subjects as I walk the street making my images. They are real unique characters and it’s that personality that often draws me to photograph them.
"It started with my fascination for large breeds a few years back, especially the Irish Wolfhound. I had some idea of an exhibition at the time but it did not come to pass. So I started @dogsbestman on instagram, and it proved to be quite popular, only problem was that I had run out of dog pictures after a few weeks.
As Michael puts it, "The old showbiz adage: "Never work with Children and Animals" has to do with the unpredictability and difficulty in controlling such energetic and wondrous beings...but the trick is to appreciate and accept their wildness and beauty and capture it as it unfolds, to allow for the spontaneity of lie and then it's a breeze!
I have been enamored with the work of Charlotte Dumas for some time now and I was thrilled to hear that she would share some of her Heart Shaped Hole series of stray dogs in Palermo with Mrs. Sizzle. We asked her a few questions about her art and love of animals. Where did your love of dogs begin and why?
Animal Haven (and that it is)! I spent the afternoon with Tiffany Lacey, the director of the shelter, and was undone by its pristine cages and the friendly staff. What a job! Not sure I could do it myself everyday but KUDOS to Tiffany. Pictured here are a FEW of the dogs currently up for adoption and I hope @thedogist and I did them justice. I have a special place in my heart for Barney as I know you will to! Please consider bringing one of these beauties home today.
I have been a big fan of Martien Mulder's work. A few months ago when TRUNK ARCHIVE did their month of animals on instagram, there was one image of Derek Blasberg's dachshund that made me contact Martien immediately and see if she had any other treasures to share.
