Really Good Dog Photography

  • Lucy Davies, Hoxton Mini Press x Penguin Books


Full of surprise, drama and heart, this ultimate photographic account shows how we need to take a fresh look at the world's best-loved animal

Dogs and photography have gone hand in paw almost since the medium was invented and our passion remains undiminished. And yet, while we claim to love dogs, we often present them in cute and predictable ways that downplay their significance in our lives. In Really Good Dog Photography, the opposite happens, as the world's best-loved animal is shown in a remarkable new light. All the images here - whether by artists or photographers, internationally renowned figures such as Alec Soth and Elliott Erwitt or the newer figures such as Ruth van Beek - approach the dog as a dignified, intelligent and noble being.

From the dogs who helped after 9/11 to the dogs of wealthy owners and the wild dogs of Africa, here the animal is photographed in ways that are penetrating, charming and respectful. Elegant, beautiful, surprising, sometimes comical, full of drama and heart, taken together, these images consider our relationship with man's best friend for the extraordinary thing it really is.

Praise for Really Good Dog Photography

Beautiful Coffee Table Books To Give This Christmas

Elle

This is a delightful book, with photos of dogs by 29 world-famous dog photographers. There are beautiful dogs, clever dogs, noble dogs, savage dogs. And on every page, more dogs. Cat lovers will look askance and wonder whether or not the world has gone mad. Which of course it has, but this book will keep a few people sane for that tiny bit longer. No, you can't have my copy: it's mine
