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 EIGHT — OUT 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.
