STRIKE A POSE

Carlina Gea yearned to see the world. Meet characters from its farthest reaches, see its spectacular sights and soak up wild experiences. Fashion photography seemed like the perfect way to live her dream. And for years it worked. But when a general frustration with the fashion industry crept in, Gea decided she needed a change. That’s where Lino comes in, Gea’s now two-year-old Italian Greyhound. “I opened an Instagram account for him and started taking pictures, then I thought ‘why not do the same but with other dogs?’” Gea traded high-fashion models for glorious mutts in an ongoing project titled ‘Fotografía Muy Animal’ and never looked back. “In one hour, I do everything I love most in the world: taking pictures, lying on the floor, getting licks from dogs, and meeting people who love the same as I do,” tells Gea.

Endless days spent with gorgeous dogs are one thing; the dog community is another: “The whole dog community shares something, the love for dogs, and that is why we understand each other so well and respect each other. I have never found anything so rewarding.”  Sharp-eyed readers will recognise Gea’s polished yet playful aesthetic across brands such as Canem Studio, Branni Pets, and peppered across our own digital pages. As a rule of thumb, if you see a pup looking Vogue-cover worthy, chances are it’s Gea’s handiwork.

DOG-FRIENDLY: TAKE THE LEAD

We are thrilled to introduce Dog-Friendly, a collection of city guides for dog-loving people, created together with our long-time contributor, photographer Winnie Au, and fellow enthusiasts, indie publisher Hoxton Mini Press. We are currently raising funds to finance all original content, to launch the collection with London and New York, and to get tails wagging for more cities to come. You can support the project here.

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.

RISING STARS

In the presence of Andrea Cáceres’ art, your heart can’t help but lift a little.
