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.
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. Available for purchase here.
