UNTER-HUNDEN

Lithuania-based photographer Andrius Burba has a keen eye for photography but not necessarily puns. Under the banner of Underlook, he started photographing animals from underneath, with the help of sturdy glass and some exceptionally patient subjects. But it wasn’t until he’d first done his Under-cats and Under-rabbits and Under-horse projects that he alighted on the perfectly named Under-dogs series, featuring our noble best friends looking goofy from the unusual angle.

He has since compiled the photographs for a book called Unter-Hunden—non-German speakers can safely hazard a guess as to the translation. “I learned two main things from these photo shoots,” Burba wrote. “First, cats think they are gods, since people feed, love, and give them homes. Secondly, dogs see human as a god as they feed, love, and give them homes.” This may very well be the last Underlook project Burba lives to complete, as the next subject he plans to tackle is tigers.

CELEBRATING FIVE YEARS

A heartfelt thank you to all the photographers, artists, illustrators, and writers who trusted us, dived in, and brought us delight, grace, excitement, courage, wilderness, and wonder over the last five years. Their work not only reflects the bonds we share with our animal companions, it also celebrates their spirit.

None of this would be possible without our four-legged counterparts who sprinkle magic dust time and time again, and our readers, who embraced this kooky idea, rallied around us, and made this world theirs too. With friends like these, who needs nine lives?

THE WRONG END OF THE STICK

Grippingly cringeworthy in places and charmingly endearing throughout, The Wrong End of the Stick is a dark comedy by Terri Matthews. Malcolm’s humdrum life is interrupted by an identity crisis, leading him down a bizarre and beautiful tale of things left unsaid, leg-humping, and plenty of awkward staring. Set against a live-action background, but with very human animated characters, Matthews manages to expertly play with humour and heart, touching on carnal urges, communication and open-mindedness.

RESIDENT DOG
