Since the wolf first snuck into the caves of our ancestors to take warmth from the fire, dogs have been man's constant companion. This book is Tim Flach's follow-up to the acclaimed Equus and delves deep into the psyche of this enduring bond with Canis familiaris to present an exquisite study of man's best friend. From specimens on show at Crufts and Westminster to shelter dogs lovingly rescued by volunteers; from the grace and agility of racing greyhounds to adored domestic companions; from Afghan hounds to Hungarian komondors to Chinese crested, the images featured in this book promise to deliver one of the most appealing, popular, and exciting photographic tributes to dogs ever published. The dogs the author captures in these pages are, by turns, soulful, expressive, and winsome--and all of them are stunning. Featuring profiles of dozens of canines, this book is a divine collection of images that spotlights the endearing characteristics of different pooches, elevating them to divine status. Whether it's a troubled-looking Bloodhound or a demure Dalmatian, Flach's subjects establish a direct connection with the viewer, dog-lover or otherwise. The author is best known for the originality that he brings to capturing animal behaviour and characteristics. In this, he is often exploring the close relationship between humans and animals, in particular how humanity imposes and reveals its ideals when trying to understand and work with animals. Large heavy book that may incur additional shipping charges to some locations.
