Hello and Welcome

A little bit about this website

All the antique dog photographs on this website are from my personal collection unless otherwise noted.

I have been collecting photographs of dogs for the last 5 years, inspired my parents who have been collecting all manor of dog related antiques since the 1970's.

There is something very evocative about the photographs, I think the author Libby Hall put is best when she said these photographs are a testimony to the extraordinary relationship that can exist between dogs and people... funny or sad, for me these frozen moments capture, not only the passion we can have for dogs, but also the fleeting transience of life: dogs' lives are poignantly short - so too are people's.

If you want to find out a bit more about me I can direct you to my website - I trained as an illustrator and I'm working as a Brand Manager for a UK cycle clothing company.

Lots of lovely things (including more antique photographs) on my Flickr photostream.
