The Silence of Dogs in Cars

Book - 2012
Rate this:
Shot over three years, Martin Usborne's series consists of over 40 images of dogs gazing silently through car windows, often in the dead of night. The images evoke a mood of loneliness and longing. They are not so much portraits of dogs as studies in separation: the separation between humans and animals, but also a separation within ourselves, between our everyday selves and the rawer, more animal parts that we keep locked away. Drawing on the work of Hopper and Crewdson, Usborne's collection wants to show that there is beauty in the darkest spaces.
