CHASING DREAMS

For Angelika Goltyaeva, pets have always been a part of everyday life. Growing up in Moscow she studied animal training and psychology, but her passion really lay in her childhood love: photography. When LuLu, her West Highland terrier, came along in 2015,  her love of photography and animals finally collided sparking a decision to focus her camera solely on the canine side of life. 

Her latest photographic series, Dreams, steers away from her colourful pet portraiture to a darker, more ethereal notion. A whippet stares melancholically into the lens, surrounded by puffs of iridescent clouds. Though beautiful to the eye, they represent dreams that are not our own. “People want to get the same beautiful life as their idols but they do not understand that these dreams are dictated to them by society, not their heart,” she says. The doe-eyed whippet was chosen specifically for its elegance and fragility, but mostly for its highly expressive face. As captivating as the images are, the clouds spinning about the handsome hound’s head are as useless to the dog as social media delusions are to us.

PACK OF DOGS BY MICHAEL GILLETTE

Have you ever imagined Amy Winehouse or Nick Cave as a Chihuahua, Neil Young as a Vizsla, or PJ Harvey as an Afghan hound?

ANIMAL MINIMAL

Whoever coined the infamous idiom ‘in the doghouse’ clearly never came across Italian industrial designer Filippo Pisan’s handsome design.
