Just like humans, dogs form attachments to their own possessions and these objects can give the viewer greater insight into their identity. The items that shape their daily routine: what they carry, keep, and eat, give us a glimpse into their hearts and minds. Dogs show us what makes them proud or happy, or what might put their vulnerability on display. Capturing an inventory of the objects most important to a dog captures the heart of the viewer as the dog’s life is fully exposed in a single image.
