Photographer Martin Usborne has created a wonderfully sad series about dogs trapped in cars. Burn Magazine
has a great story about what it represents which includes this part, which I particularly liked:
"The camera is the perfect tool for capturing a sense of silence and longing: the shutter freezes the subject for ever and two layers of glass are placed between the viewer and the viewed: the glass of the lens, the glass of the picture frame and, in this instance, the glass of the car window further isolates the animal. The dog is truly trapped.
"When I started this project I knew the photos would be dark. What I didn’t expect was to see so many subtle reactions by the dogs: some sad, some expectant, some angry, some dejected. It was as if upon opening up a box of grey-coloured pencils I was surprised to see so many shades inside.
"I hope that these pictures are engaging and perhaps a little amusing. I want to show that there is life in the dark places within us."
For anyone who owns a dog or just likes them, you'll get a kick out of these photos. (Someone free Frido!)
