Miami Sunrise

Story goes that when photographer Tomáš Werner met a four-year-old Pomeranian called ‘Q’, Werner was out of work and Q was keen to pose. It was a fateful pairing. “It almost seems like Q was waiting to be photographed,”  Werner says. So the shots began, and ended, and wound up in A Handbook for Dog Walkers. Q oozes some serious charm, smiling from ear to ear as he poses—genuinely poses—atop all sorts of pedestals. His range is impressive: sometimes he’ll lie with one paw flopped forward, or he might assume a direct profile with his head a precise 80 degrees. Always willing, Q makes an incredible muse, and his ability to work it like the best is complemented by Werner’s eye for location. Pastel-coloured Art Deco buildings in Miami backdrop the story, providing a cohesive narrative. While Q champions the shots, they’d still be beautiful in his absence. As much
as the photographs are about Q, they’re also a homage to the details found everywhere on buildings, homes, businesses, and streets in Florida. An intensely humorous, feel-good look at architecture, and Q, of course. Includes an afterword by Elliot Erwitt.
