Picture of Well Heeled (Signed)

Publisher's Description

Dougie Wallace has turned his camera on man’s best friend and the strange world of ‘pet parents’. Dogs, and his pursuit of them, have taken him to London, Milan, New York and Tokyo. Anthropomortic 'parents' can spend as much on accessorising and grooming their ‘offspring’ as they would on themselves.

Dougie Wallace has used his observation and wit to portray this phenomenon in his new series Well Heeled. Wallace’s dogs have human expressions and are strong characters, who, with their knowing looks, can even appear to play to camera.

Well Heeled captures details from a dog’s eye view that we bipeds would not usually see. Behind the coiffured and pampered ‘children in fur coats’ the focus is on their claws, paw pads, incisors, drool-drenched beards and wet noses. Their canine traits erupt throughout the photographs and leave the viewer in no doubt that they are animals who would rather chase a ball or chew bones than be dressed up with crystal collars, Louis Vuitton leads and pushed around in prams.

Acknowledged as one of UK’s leading photographers, Dougie Wallace has published four successful books in the last three years – Stags, Hens & Bunnies, Road Wallah and Harrodsburg (Dewi Lewis Publishing) and Shoreditch Wildlife (Hoxton Minipress) and has featured in major exhibitions in Europe, the United States and India. He continues to attract considerable press and media attention and his photographs feature regularly in leading international publications. In March 2017, BBC TV screened a 30 minute documentary about him as part of the series What Do Artists Do All Day. The programme followed Dougie on the streets of Knightsbridge as he completed work on his Harrodsburg book.

Publisher's Description

With The Family of Dog, Michael Ruetz has implemented a unique photographic series in the last fifty years which at the same time presents a subtle and enlightening depiction of people and their social behaviour. Dogs, after all, are what we want to see in them and what we make of them. In the rarest case, a dog is simply an animal. Michael Ruetz photographed dogs on the street, at homes, on the beach or in front of the TV, which usually makes them fall asleep. He depicts them alone, with cats and cows and again and again as man’s companion. Ruetz avoids any mise-en-scène and imposing himself on the animals. Occasional provocative payoffs result from patient observation. As man in his daily routine, dogs slide into odd situations all the time. In this sincere and nevertheless ironic book, Michael Ruetz shows the various forms of canine existence, a comédie canine, in life as in death.

Publisher's Description

Every winter throughout Spain it is estimated that up to 100,000 hunting dogs are abandoned or killed at the end of the hare-coursing season when they are no longer needed, perform badly or are too old. This book documents those dogs that have been rescued and sets them against the locations in Spain where they are typically abandoned: the sides of roads, the ravines, the rivers, the edges of towns, and the empty car parks. Shot in a style that references the tone and mood of Velázquez who painted at a time when these dogs were treated with great respect, Martin Usborne’s photographs show both the classical beauty of the animals but also the ugliness of their modern situation – their bodies are weakened, their expressions fearful. The dogs in these pictures are the fortunate ones – they have found a place to rest and recuperate. The landscapes bear testament to those less fortunate animals who find a different kind of rest beside the roads, in the rivers, or out in the open plains. Following his successful book The Silence of Dogs in Cars (Kehrer 2012) Martin Usborne again presents unusual and moving portraits of dogs.

Picture of Equus
Publisher's Description
“From the outset I felt quite strongly that I wanted to celebrate the horse in its own right.”

—Tim Flach, photographer No animal has captured the human imagination quite like the horse, depicted in media from cave drawings thousands of years ago through countless renderings in paint, clay, ink, even film. Award-winning photographer Tim Flach’s quest to document the horse has resulted in Equus, an intensely moving look at an animal—as solitary subject and en masse, from the air and from underwater—whose history is so powerfully linked to our own.

From exquisite Arabians in the Royal Yards of the United Arab Emirates to purebred Icelandic horses in their glacial habitat; from the soulful gaze of a single horse’s lash-lined eye to the thundering majesty of thousands of Mustangs racing across the plains of Utah, Equus provides an amazing and unique insight into the physical dynamics and spirit of the horse.
