Overview

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
are stunning."
—Entertainment Weekly

"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

"Featuring profiles of dozens of canines, Dogs is a divine collection of images that spotlights the endearing characteristics of different pooches, elevating them to divine status. Whether it's a troubled-looking Bloodhound or a demure Dalmatian, Flach's subjects establish a direct connection with the viewer, dog-lover or otherwise."

As has been said every dog has his day but not until the insightful Tim Flach have dogs been captured in extraordinary photos capturing not only our best friends at rest, at work, and at play but also revealing the deep affection we have for them. As Blackwell writes, "There's a bond we have with the dog that goes beyond all other animals." How true! Tim Flach's photography is a work of art with each photo bringing the viewer close to the subject. It's difficult to describe the intimacy one feels. A Pug with startling blue eyes and endearingly wrinkled face gazes directly into the eyes of the viewer. Impossible not to love him! A proud German Shepherd looks trustingly from the page, a reminder that this breed is often a police or search-and-rescue dog. A honey colored Labrador Retriever pup with his snub nose and silky floppy ears is titled "Say You Love Me." Of course, we do! Precisely lit and thoughtfully cropped these photos are sheer beauty - a black Lab, Sadie, is shown with the prestigious Dickin Medal around her neck. The Medal was given for "conspicuous gallantry or devotion to duty" while working with the British armed forces. Sadie's ebony coat gleams with the luster of midnight. A Golden Retriever's love of water is expressed in succeeding photos as the happy dog shakes water from his russet coat. "Information" at the back of the volume provides details about each dog photographed . DOGS is 216 pages of pure pleasure, a volume that will be enjoyed over and over again. Highly recommended. - Gail Cooke

I haven't purchased this yet, but I have looked at every photo and read every word while in my local B&N. If you love dogs and "get" their spirits, you will love this book! Every image is absolutly breathtaking! Flach clearly understands the amazing dogs he photographed.

Do you love dogs? Tim Flach uses his camera for capturing dogs' characteristics and beauty; each page of this book is a work of art. You will find that each photo first captures your eye and then your heart as you try to read the expression or body language of each dog. Like the "Flying Mop" Puli that makes you chuckle at his playfulness and chaotic movement or the Boxer with the deep beautiful tones of the dog coat and background. The photography in this book is really amazing and the insight into each breed is equally amazing and wonderful. Tim Flach did a wonderful job with horses and now dogs. I cannot wait to see what he does next. Patti

I purchased this book for my Mom for her 60th b-day. She loves dogs so much that we have had dogs all of my life and most of hers. She now has 6 (yes I said 6) Great Danes all of whom are rescues. She loves each and every one of them equally. I received the book to give to her and couldn't contain myself I opened it, read it and loved it so much I have claimed it for myself....so I am here to buy another.
