Book Description

1 Oct 2010
Dogs is multi-award-winning photographer Tim Flach's stunning follow-up to the critically acclaimed Equus. Here, Flach once again sets out to document fully the lives of animals whose history is powerfully linked to our own and to provide a unique perspective on one of our closest companions: this time, dogs. Using photographs of dogs both solitary and in groups, as well as in varied settings and locations, Flach uses his lens to present a inimitable and engaging portrait of the physical and spiritual lives of dogs (breeds and crossbreeds of all types) around the globe. Since the wolf first snuck into the caves of our ancestors to take warmth from the fire, dogs have been man's constant companion.Dogs delves deep into the psyche of this enduring bond to create an exquisite study of man's best friendA". From specimens on show at Crufts and Westminster to shelter dogs lovingly rescued by volunteers; from the grace and agility of racing greyhounds to adored domestic companions; from Afghan hounds to Hungarian komondors, the dogs featured in Dogs promise to deliver one of the most appealing, popular and exciting photographic tributes to dogs ever published.

About the Author

Tim Flach studied fine art at Central St. Martin's College of Art and Design and emerged with a fascination for photography, which has since led to numerous commissions, awards, solo exhibitions and a presence in permanent collections and publications around the world. He is best known for the originality that he brings to capturing animal behaviour and characteristics. In this, he is often exploring the close relationship between animals and humans, in particular how humanity imposes and reveals its ideals when trying to understand and work with animals.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply stunning 18 Jan 2011
Working with animals is one of the joys of life, you never know what you're going to get. Tim Flach once again sets the bar even higher with 'Dogs Gods', Tim manages to capture the true character of a dog personality whilst turning it into a work of art. Not since the likes of Sally Anne Thompson have I seen pictures of dogs caught in such a flattering way. This is a must buy for any dog lover.

5.0 out of 5 stars EVERYONE'S BEST FRIEND 15 Nov 2010
By Gail Cooke TOP 500 REVIEWER
As has been said every dog has his day but not until the insightful Tim Flach have dogs been captured in extraordinary photos capturing not only our best friends at rest, at work, and at play but also revealing the deep affection we have for them. As Blackwell writes, "There's a bond we have with the dog that goes beyond all other animals." How true!

Tim Flach's photography is a work of art with each photo bringing the viewer close to the subject. It's difficult to describe the intimacy one feels. A Pug with startling blue eyes and endearingly wrinkled face gazes directly into the eyes of the viewer. Impossible not to love him! A proud German Shepherd looks trustingly from the page, a reminder that this breed is often a police or search-and-rescue dog. A honey colored Labrador Retriever pup with his snub nose and silky floppy ears is titled "Say You Love Me." Of course, we do!

Precisely lit and thoughtfully cropped these photos are sheer beauty - a black Lab, Sadie, is shown with the prestigious Dickin Medal around her neck. The Medal was given for "conspicuous gallantry or devotion to duty" while working with the British armed forces. Sadie's ebony coat gleams with the luster of midnight. A Golden Retriever's love of water is expressed in succeeding photos as the happy dog shakes water from his russet coat.

"Information" at the back of the volume provides details about each dog photographed . DOGS is 216 pages of pure pleasure, a volume that will be enjoyed over and over again.

Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars BREATHTAKINGLY STUNNING!!! 19 Feb 2012
By Carol 'avid little bookworm' TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I've been a dog lover all my life and have many dog books, of all varieties, but this has to rank as the most beautiful dog book I own.

As the book is expensive and doesn't have the "look inside option" I did rely to some extent on the other reviews, although the picture on the front dust cover is a work of art in itself.

I wasn't disappointed when it arrived I read it from cover to cover, text provided by Lewis Blackwell. This was interesting not too in depth and I think he's more a businessman than a doggy person so I've enjoyed it for what it is, a product of quality and sheer beauty. There are countless other books out there, written by experienced breeders, judges etcetera for specific breed or dog information, for me this is all about the pictures.

I'd highly recommend to dog and art lovers alike, it's truly unique. The book is large and from the moment you open it up it's truly stunning, the first two pages show just the fur back of a Rhodesian ridgeback, featuring the "ridge", the last two pages again show just the dogs back, the glorious wrinkles of the Shar-pei. Stunning two page shots of Afghan hound, frenchie, poodles back, Dalmatian pups, great danes, black fur, close up head and also a noise shot, beautiful eyes, dog shaking off water, extreme grooming, the stunning pug with the appearance of blue eyes mentioned by a previous reviewer along with the rare and extremely expensive Tibetan mastiff all breath taking.

It lives in my main bookcase in our lounge and comes out often. It is a work of art and I love it! Tim Flach's Equus (horses) is now on my wish list.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gorgeous treat for your eyes. 15 Aug 2012
I had been looking at this book for ages, and it has been a permanent fixture on my wish list for some time, that was until my amazing wife treated me to it as a birthday present this year. I have been a dog lover since I can remember, and also a lover of beautiful photography. Tim Flach has done an amazing job with this book. It makes an awesome coffee table book, and an even better supplier of those "aaaaw!" moments.
It's a huge sumptuous book that is full of beautiful photographs of gorgeous dogs. One stood out more than all the others, imagine my delight when I get to page 134 to find a descendent of my very own beautiful pooch!
An amazing book that will keep you and your dog loving guests amused for hours. (BTW, if your guests don't love dogs, why are you hanging out with them?)

5.0 out of 5 stars GET IT BY AMAZON 22 Dec 2010
The former review pretty much said it all, this book displays such stunning images of our so called best friends.
I did go myself to the exhibition in the Osborne Gallery, and they sold me the book for 25 pounds, I knew Amazon would also sell the book, but I was silly and agreed to get it there. So, do get it from here as you will save 10 pounds!!
