Hoxton Mini Press (Author) Martin Usborne is a renowned photographer with a particular interest in dogs. Co-founder with Ann Waldvogel of Hoxton Mini Press, a publisher dedicated to bringing smart photography and beautiful photobooks to a wider audience, he has volunteered with British rescue charity All Dogs Matter as well as a number of charities around the world that help trafficked or otherwise at risk animals.In 2017 Hoxton Mini Press teamed up with Penguin Books to create a brand new series of books gathering the best photography around on certain photographic subjects, hoping to reach the widest audience with art that enriches the human experience. Really Good Dog Photography is the first title in the series.
A title that doesn’t lie, these are really good dog photos. Containing the work of some of the best animal photographers there are naturally many different approaches to photographing dogs, many of the pictures have the “aaah” factor, many show the beauty, the fun, the work of dogs and there are some here to tug the heart-strings – particularly the portraits of dogs marooned in rescue centres. An excellent introduction to the subject featuring photographers such as Elliott Erwitt and William Wegman. ~ Sue Baker Like for Like Reading The Dogist by Elias Weiss Friedman
