martin usborne: mute - the silence of dogs in cars

PhotographyErin HansonComment

It seems to be UK week accidentally. Martin Usborne is another photographer from across the pond. He's a got a marvelously diverse portfolio, ranging from portraits, to travel, to animal shots. I particularly like his "Mute - The Silence of Dogs in Cars" series, which captures man's best friend as he/she waits for his/her master to return.

Usborne comes across to me, in both his words and photos, as a person with wit but also a lot of heart. He doesn't seem to take himself too seriously, and at the same time he is genuine and empathetic.  This seems especially evident here and is a reoccurring theme as you peruse his site. To read the story behind this particular project it becomes even clearer. As an aside, I don't know how he did it, but I find it remarkable how many of the dogs coordinate with the cars they are in.

For more of my favorites keep going after the jump. Also be sure to check out another great series, "Dead Fox". "Ha" and "hell yeah" are all I have to say about that one.
