THE DOG TALES

Frankie Lodge has no use for treats, or squeaky toys, or bones. Instead, she takes photos at dog’s-eye level—dropping low to encourage spontaneous, offbeat interactions that create unpredictable, friendly photographs. “The encounter should be as random as it would be when ‘we’, us humans, meet,” says Lodge, who started @the_dogtales due to her love for one dog in particular: a shitzu called Mr Miyagi. “Whenever I would miss Mr Miyagi and was able to get some down time from work, in whichever country I was in at the time, I would pick up my camera in search of the nearest dog,” Lodge explains. “I hoped they could soothe my homesickness, or should that be ‘dogsickness?’”

It didn’t take long for Lodge’s photo project to morph from coping mechanism into ongoing obsession. These days, she records and shares the lifestyles of dogs all over the world. Snaps of a cool pit bull in Barcelona, a fluffy Labs in Miami, and a dalmatian puppy in Athens are all totally at home on her feed.
