HOME IS WHERE THE DOG IS

“I love shooting interiors because of the amount of control I have over the composition and light,” says photographer Sara Essex Bradley. “However, you throw in a dog, and there goes the control!” Having studied Fine Arts, Bradley approaches interiors photography using visual cues from painting or drawing. After 18 years snapping stunning homes, Bradley realised that she’d amassed a solid collection of gorgeous rooms with the family dog in the frame.

Compiling them all into a book seemed like the natural next step. In Bradley’s words, her book Dog Décor “offers a glimpse into home and family life from the perspective of the ambassador: the dog.” It turns out that this inspiring book isn’t just popular amongst dog lovers and design aficionados—kids love it too. “They love finding the dogs from page to page, and the writing is simple enough for young readers,” Bradley says.

ISSUE SEVEN — OUT NOW

This issue is about the joy of looking from the outside in. We tap into the routines (and peek inside the houses) of human–dog relationships around Tokyo. We ponder the age-old connection between dogs and horses. We journey with a wild mutt from New York to Zurich. We chuckle over poop-scoop habits around the world. There’s a lot to laugh about in this issue. Be it The McCartney’s pics of dogs in heels, artist Al Taylor’s wee art, John Bond’s drawings (feat a puppy pretzel!) or artist Wilfrid Wood’s bloated dog heads. All this, and more, inside the covers.
