BLOSSOMING

A noble doberman meets our gaze through a gap in a frothy arrangement of pink and creamy white peonies. A smooth-haired dachshund with floppy ears and inquisitive eyes perches in front of a trio of tall sunflowers. A pair of whippets stand alert, their heads turned in unison, a profusion of potted plants around them. Clemens Schneider’s photographs feature a vast array of flora—and centre stage, our four-legged friends striking a pose.

Every year, the Vienna-based photographer and artist celebrates the arrival of spring with a series of portraits of animals with fresh flowers. The compositions range from minimalist to maximalist, with one dog touching noses with a single white rose, and another surrounded by pink lilies and velvety irises. Some shots are more candid than others: a fox terrier seems nonchalant before by a fluffy cloud of gypsophila, while a caramel-coloured spaniel balances on its hind legs beside some foxgloves.

The pets appear on stark white plinths like bronze and marble sculptures in a museum. The aim, says Schneider, is both to tell a story and to raise up our ‘beloved animals’ by putting them on a pedestal. ‘We love animals and flowers and want to photograph pets like they deserve it.’ Blossoming.

PACK OF DOGS
