German photographer Ralph Hargarten is the author of a series of photographs, in which dog face expressions are very similar to human emotions. The black background emphasizes every dog’s personality.
The series is called A Dog’s Life and it illustrates a good range of emotions and feelings of dogs. If you look closely, you can see that dog facial expressions are very developed, and you may want to know what’s the story of each one of them. Why some of them are so sad, and another ones are so pensive? Ralph Hargarten thinks that if most of the dogs have human names it should be ok to photograph them as people. So, that’s what he did.
