Family portrait

“The relationships between humans and animals has always fascinated me,” says photographer Ernest Goh of his candid portrait series Pet Owners of Laos. “The relationship can become quite apparent when they pose in front of the camera,” he adds. Indeed his photographs capture the often-touching moments between dogs and their owners; never more obvious than in his images of nervous children clutching equally camera shy pups.

“Every animal is different and every dog is different. I prefer to see each animal as individuals,” he comments. Goh believes that photographing people with their companion animals brings the underlying bond between the two to the surface, and his images make for a fascinating documentation of these canine-human partnerships. “Seeing the animal-human interaction tells an interesting story behind their relationship,” he adds. “The ways they pose with each other are superb visual clues.”
