Dogs are funny characters. They find pleasure in the most mundane things. My dogs are my joy, recreation and constant source of laughter, though they can be shy and sad as well and have also comforted me in bad times. They are indeed family, the kind of family members you love to have around and never get into trouble with, as they are unpretentious and forgiving. I would never say I prefer dogs to humans – after all, there are people who mean much to me, too. But I would definitely say that they enrich my life and I hope I can at least give them back half of what they give us. In my pictures I try to explore the funny, quirky side of dogs and dog photography. It’s an homage to dogs, life and photography.
