Frankie Lodge found a cure for “dogsickness”: grab a camera, drop, and snap.

THE DOG TALES

Frankie Lodge has no use for treats, or squeaky toys, or bones. Instead, she takes photos at dog’s-eye level—dropping low to encourage spontaneous, offbeat interactions that create unpredictable, friendly photographs. “The encounter should be as random as it would be when ‘we’, us humans, meet,” says Lodge, who started @the_dogtales due to her love for one dog in particular: a shitzu called Mr Miyagi. “Whenever I would miss Mr Miyagi and was able to get some down time from work, in whichever country I was in at the time, I would pick up my camera in search of the nearest dog,” Lodge explains. “I hoped they could soothe my homesickness, or should that be ‘dogsickness?’”

It didn’t take long for Lodge’s photo project to morph from coping mechanism into ongoing obsession. These days, she records and shares the lifestyles of dogs all over the world. Snaps of a cool pit bull in Barcelona, a fluffy Labs in Miami, and a dalmatian puppy in Athens are all totally at home on her feed.

ISSUE EIGHT — PRE-ORDER NOW

In this issue we challenge stereotypes, big and small. Klaus Dyba’s portraits of hairless dogs embrace the bald and the beautiful, Winnie Au’s fashion-inspired photos take the shame out of the cone, and the stellar lineup in Really Good Dog Photography stir us well away from the obvious fluff. We marvel at artists who can breath life into hounds on paper, screen and space. We travel to the heart of Australia, where dogs can easily become a hungry croc’s lunch. We fall in love with the ultimate four-legged bad-asses (we are looking at you, Brian Griffin) and we hang with farm dogs and their hip humans in the rolling hills of the Hudson Valley. All this, and more, inside the covers.
