SEA CHANGE

During winter, the beach is a quiet place. After the sunbaking bodies and candy-striped umbrellas have abandoned the sand until warmer weather returns, the only creatures often wandering the shoreline each day are dogs and their human companions. Masterful Japanese photographer Tomio Seike has captured these beachgoers in his serene series Overlook.

Taken from a window in Seike’s holiday apartment in Brighton, England, Overlook documents the changing light and muted colour tones of a particular stretch of beach, as well as its regular visitors. At first glance, the photographs could be mistaken for paintings. Each piece features a massive expanse of water, dwarfing the unidentifiable figures in the image, visible only as dark splodges in the shapes of two- or four-legged beings. Seike is well known for photographing in black and white—see his Paris and Nude Untitled series—but these tranquil seaside landscapes show that he’s just as at ease with colour

ISSUE NINE — BUY NOW

In our Spring issue, there’s much to be in high spirits about. We go behind the scenes of Wes Anderson’s Isle of Dogs, a movie fuelled by dopamine, alpha dogs, and a vast crew of artisans and animators. We hang with a pack of trippy-looking poodles created by artist Susumu Kamijo. We find five mutts who changed history by injecting their human counterparts with a good dose of serotonin. There is plenty of oxytocin going around, too. We celebrate Sulek’s photography of rescued Spanish galgos, Jo Longshurst’s abstract twist on pet portraiture, and Ho Hai Tran’s love of stripes and spots. We travel to Berlin, Toronto, London, and upstate New York to meet creative types whose bonds with their four-legged mates are as heartfelt as they are intoxicating. We ask five foodies to fess up about dog snacks and guilty pleasures that feed body and soul, and we embrace illustrator Apolline Muet’s bear hugs between humans and animals.
All this, and more, inside the covers.
