London-based photographer Alan Schaller is mostly known for his surreal, high contrast black and white photography that portrays “the realities and diversities of human life.” However, people are not the only subject that this street photographer aims to reveal through his works. This ongoing project celebrates a unique relationship we have with our feline friends.
These images that Schaller captures during his travels around the world show different personalities each dog has, from tiny puppies to huge hounds. The process involves getting familiar with the dog first, creating some kind of a bond and gaining their trust. "I find dogs are in general more consistently friendly, unpredictable, and amusing than humans," says Schaller. "Almost every dog I have photographed, unless the scenario has been tragic, has made me laugh at some point when meeting it."
Photographer hopes that his images will encourage people to help various charities that allow you to adopt a dog or support them through donations. Scroll down to explore Alan Schaller's works for yourself.
