LOOK CLOSER

Remco Muntz doesn’t really like dogs. A photographer based in the Netherlands, he isn’t interested at all in having a pet of his own. However, he is fascinated with people who adore their pets and the close bond between animals and their owners. His photo series ‘Pets (Symbiosis)’ shows portraits of dogs, except with their owners’ eyes photoshopped in place of their own. “I’m not a documentary photographer,” Muntz said, “For me, the image has to be strong conceptually. An image that has a beauty of itself, but preferably with a hidden layer.” The subtle switching of the eyes evokes a strange sense of something about the picture being amiss, but often viewers can’t quite place what it is. “It’s great. Much better than giving a dog their owner’s ears, for example. That would make it a joke. The image has a mystical feel, and the bond they share has this mystical feel as well.”

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.
