Warts and all

Carli Davidson shakes pet photography up.


Warts and all

Carli Davidson loves animals, that we can tell. An experienced animal trainer/caretaker and award winning pet photographer, Davidson’s understanding of animal behaviour gives her the edge to approach her subjects like you would a longtime friend. This is no pet photography as we know it, the choices being unique and very, very personal, as seen is series such as Pets with disabilities and Pride Northwest. Here, there is no looking the other way.

Davidson’s series Shake (which is gone viral-crazy recently), portraying a group of dogs shaking off water, was shot in high speed and incredible detail; every crease, every drool, every drop of water in display. These are the kind of portraits we have all taken of our younger siblings: purposely unflattering, unexpected, odd, yet completely intimate and endearing.

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.


For his series ‘Compositions and Attitudes’ photographer Hosung Jung captures dogs’ unadulterated curiosity.


Built to battle with any and all elements—while looking wildly cool—Bastards is for design-loving humans and dogs with plenty of attitude. 


Feeling camera shy? Try taking a leaf out of your pup’s book. In these lush images, Clemens Schneider captures dogs in full bloom.
