About the Book
Multi-award-winning photographer Flach's stunning follow-up to the criticallyacclaimed "Equus," presents an exquisite study of "man's best friend."
Since the wolf first snuck into the caves of our ancestors to take warmth from the fire, dogs have been man's constant companion. Dogs
, multi-award-winning photographer Tim Flach's stunning follow-up to the critically acclaimed Equus
, delves deep into the psyche of this enduring bond with Canis familiaris
to present an exquisite study of "man's best friend."
From specimens on show at Crufts and Westminster to shelter dogs lovingly rescued by volunteers; from the grace and agility of racing greyhounds to adored domestic companions; from Afghan hounds to Hungarian komondors to Chinese crested, the images featured in Dogs
promise to deliver one of the most appealing, popular, and exciting photographic tributes to dogs ever published.
Praise for Dogs:
The dogs he captures in these pages are, by turns, soulful, expressive, and winsome-- and all of them
This book will appeal to all ages. I know this because it was lying around our house on Thanksgiving Day and everyone wanted a look at it -- from college-age to senior citizen. They all oohed and aahed. If you're a dog lover, or even a dog liker, it's a keeper.
--The Christian Science Monitor
