Dog holes

When walking in the woods, photographer Trevor Powers stumbled upon an unexpected phenomenon.


Dog holes

In the pioneer valley, a forested region west of Boston, there’s a series of trails dubbed the ‘Northampton Dog Park’. Walking these woods each day, I started to notice the ways dogs had subtly transformed the landscape. Every so often, there were dog-sized breaks in the bush along the trails, always leading deeper into the thicket. Places where human guardians couldn’t follow. These ‘dog holes’ would change with the season and never reappear in the same location. I became increasingly interested in how they mirrored my own ideas of what the woods represent: solitude in a public space, quiet contemplation, loneliness, and the dangerousness and enticement of the unknown.

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.


For his series ‘Compositions and Attitudes’ photographer Hosung Jung captures dogs’ unadulterated curiosity.


Built to battle with any and all elements—while looking wildly cool—Bastards is for design-loving humans and dogs with plenty of attitude.
