BRIGHT EYES

Most of the dogs in these photographs are rescued galgos, traditional Spanish hunting dogs. We volunteer at a shelter where many of the animals are so scared of humans they don’t even look at us. They keep their heads down. Their eyes are sad. They tremble with fear. Four years ago we adopted a rescued galgo, Ray. He hasn’t yet lost his fear of people, but the change in his character has been enormous. When he’s with us, he seems to be the happiest dog on the planet. In the series, we wanted to show another side of galgos—to highlight their elegant, beautiful souls, and capture them looking proudly into the camera. As beautiful and noble as they are.

PACK OF DOGS

Have you ever imagined Amy Winehouse or Nick Cave as a Chihuahua, Neil Young as a Vizsla, or PJ Harvey as an Afghan hound? That’s exactly what San Francisco-based artist Michael Gillette has done through his unique illustration project, blending beloved, iconic music legends, both past and present, with their dog counterparts. Pack of Dogs, our first foray into book publishing, is a celebration of pup and pop culture for music and dog lovers alike.
