dog/india

limited edition artist book, 7" x 7" with 200 pages

There are dogs everywhere in India.

During the period from November 2007 to April 2008 in India, I took a photograph of every dog that I could see. This book contains photographs of all of these dogs in chronological order.

The locations include Chennai, Pondicherry, Mamallapuram, Vedantangal, Cochi, Munnar, Aurangabad, Jalgoan, Ahmendabad, Boroda, Zainabad, Kolkata, Howrah, Varanasi. Jaipur, Goa and Mumbai.

These urban dogs are a strange combination of the wild and the domesticated in the same space, referring to both but being neither. What caught my attention was the idea that nature and the urban are compromised together in these animals.
