TIES THAT BIND

They say that a walk in the fresh air is great for creative inspiration. It worked a charm for photographer Robert Kalman, who was power walking around his neighbourhood when he formed the idea for his project, Dogs Among Us. “As the winter settled in, I began to notice that no matter how cold or inclement the weather many of my neighbours would be out and about dutifully exercising their dogs. Metaphorically speaking, it was as if the dog’s leash served to umbilically link people with their animal,” Kalman said.

Compiled into a book, the series was taken in and around New York City’s Tompkins Square Park this year and features portraits of people and pooches from all walks of life. Kalman remembers how one particular photograph came about, “Because I use a big, cumbersome camera to make portraits, frequently people are curious. Eddy was one such person and when I explained about our project he said, ‘Well I have a dog.’ With that, he lifted up his shirt so I could see the tattoo of his dog Red on his chest. ‘I had him for seven years before he died. We did everything together.’ Now that’s an enduring relationship.”

    Having so much content and articles do you get any problems of copyright infringement? My website has lots of exclusive material I’ve either written myself or outsourced but it looks like a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my permission. Do you know any techniques to help stop content from being ripped off? I’d truly appreciate it.
