After a little holiday, we are back with a bang – a hilarious one:

From her series “Wet Dog” – a fantastic set of dog portraits by photographer Sophie Gamand of Striking Paws. Words from her website:

Wet Dog is a series of portraits of dogs caught mid-bath, by photographer Sophie Gamand. The way the water plays with their hair in a very painterly manner, and their facial expressions as the water is poured on them creates striking portraits. The dogs are caught at a vulnerable moment, half a second before they shake the water off their fur. The series was done in collaboration with groomer and pet stylist Ruben Santana. Beside the esthetic aspect of grooming, it is also a necessary routine for dogs and helps prevent diseases and infection.
Through her photography, Sophie Gamand explores the complex relationship between dogs and humans. She also wishes to challenge that bond: how far do we take our relationship to our pets? How much are dogs willing to accept to maintain this bond? There is a lot of co-dependance in the dog/human dynamic. With her work, Sophie Gamand wants others to see dogs for what they are: more than just animals. They are life companions. When she photographs dogs, she looks for the human in them: an expression, the life in their eyes, a smile. It’s almost as if humans and dogs are morphing into one-another. It’s more than just anthropomorphism though. Sophie doesn’t try to attribute human qualities to dogs. She tries to capture the ones that she believes are already there.

Welcome to the City of Elgin Park.

Michael Paul Smith is the perfect example of an artist with a passion for what he does. For the last 25 years, he has spent some of his spare and much of his professional time making miniature models and photographing them, creating a gallery of vintage car photographs from a fictional 1950s American town called Elgin Park.

As a professional model maker, Smith’s models are detailed enough to withstand the scrutiny of close-up photography. Smith places them in miniature dioramas and uses forced perspective to make parts of the real world lend his pictures additional realism. The result is a quirky sort of historical fiction – faithfully and authentically reproduced scenes from a small American town that never actually happened (but could have).

What’s also great about his Elgin Park collection is that the magician is willing to reveal his secrets. Smith’s Flickr gallery often pairs his brilliant illusions with a picture that breaks their carefully arranged perspective and reveals how he managed to blend reality and his imagined history. His pictures are an excellent example of how art can be used to fool the eyes.
