Dog Dogs draws from an extensive series by American photographer Elliott Erwitt and includes over 60 black-and-white photographs taken around the world between the years 1946 and 2002. Erwitt sees the dignity of the ankle-high Chihuahua, the anxiety of the homeless hound, the patience of the pom-pommed poodle and the matchless joy of the homely but well-loved pug.
These acute observations of the canine world prove that human relationships with furry friends are often due to mutual resemblance and emotion.
Elliott Erwitt has spent a lifetime behind the lens. “The maxim says ‘time flies when you are having fun,’” he writes of taking photos, “It surely has been fun and time has surely flown. But more than fun it has been and continues to be a way of life for me.”
