Working Dogs: Portraits of the World’s Hardest-Working Dogs

AlexAnimals, Photography, Portraits





Photographer Andrew Fladeboe travelled to Norway and New Zealand to take pictures of various working dogs for his project The Shepherd’s Realm.

Andrew Fladeboe’s love for animals began early—one of his first idols was Doctor Dolittle. While he might not have the fictional doctor’s ability to communicate with animals, he certainly knows how to photograph them.

“I think one of the reasons I decided to focus on animals is because I didn’t think anyone was portraying them the way I saw them,” he wrote to Slate. “The animals in our works stand on their own as sentient beings. They occupy the print with an aura of dignity and command a level of respect from the viewer. They are not anthropomorphic photos of animals, but a celebration of what these animals are for what they are. It is art for animals sake, not animals for arts sake.”
