Synopsis: (Goodreads) Every dog owner knows too well the fun and misery of bath time: the wriggles, the poignant looks, the playful splashes. WET DOG, by photographer Sophie Gamand, is a stunning and touching capture of this intimate moment. Elevating dog photography to the status of art, these expressive portraits of our canine friends mirror our very own human emotions.
Anyone who has had a dog knows this can be a funny and really hard experience. I am lucky enough that my dog likes baths/showers and doesn’t give me trouble but he is funny when he’s wet as he’s a big dog but still looks like a drowned rat.
These are simple and great pictures. Some of the expressions are so funny you will laugh out loud at them. There are all kinds of different dogs too from larger breeds to the really small breeds and that is one of the biggest appeals about this book. I would have given it 5/5 if there had been little stories to accompany the dogs but at least you know the names, breed and age of the dogs if you wanted to learn more about a particular picture.
If you know a dog lover in your life, or you are one yourself you should pick this up for your collection. Even my two-year old son who loves dogs will sit and look at this book. It would be great as a gift too if you are looking for that hard to buy person. I have a copy and it’s under my coffee table.
Even if you wanted to google some of the pictures I suggest it, they will give you a smile 😀
