British photographer Tim Flach sees animals in a completely different way. Having completed postgraduate studies at St. Martins School of Art London, Flach shoots stylized animal portraits that look more like fine art than framed shots of your puppy. Commercially trained as a professional photographer for over 25 years, Flach's conceptual style has been shaped by his background not just in photography but in, curiously, painted sculptures.

Portraits of Dogs Least Likely to Be Adopted
A Boy and his Dog
Oh, the things dogs put up with. Not only are they subjected to sometimes-functional, sometimes-silly attire, but sometimes, just sometimes, humans even force them to participate in that most frivolous of events -- the fashion show. One such doggie fashion show took place Wednesday in Taipei, Taiwan, where a company launching a collection of canine couture had dogs, alongside human models, parade in everything from beachwear to formal evening clothes. Metro U.K. quoted one dog owner who said of her pet: "I want my dog to dress up like me, just like mother and daughter in the same style dress." (Hmmm, really? We love our dogs to bits, but that doesn't mean we want to look like them.) Scenes from a doggie fashion show

These cute, up-close dog portraits make me so happy! Minneapolis-based photographer Barbara O'Brien provides pet, animal, and rural lifestyle photographs to advertising agencies, magazines, and book publishing companies. In her series called Dog Face, the artist has brilliantly captured the individual character of all types of dogs by narrowing in on each canine's face and using a very simple, neutral background. Each dog has such personality! Adorable Dog Portraits Filled with Personality

I came across Traer Scott's portraits of dogs living in American shelters and was immediately taken aback by the mix of emotions I felt. Look at these dogs' faces and you'll see what I mean.
