National Geographic photographer Vincent Musi is used to photographing bears, elephants, tigers, lions, sheep, and pigs, but dared to try something different: dogs. With The Unleashed Studio, he invited friends and neighbours to bring in their canine companions (but no owners allowed) where he captured their beauty, spirit, and personality using the same lighting and photographic techniques that he does for National Geographic. The results are exquisite – arresting close-ups that dignify each dog with grace and humour.
These notecards feature 16 engaging and utterly striking photos from Musi’s book The Year of the Dogs. Their individuality shines through in every portrait, sure to make any recipient’s day!
