Old Dogs are the best dogs.

These images are from the book Old Dogs by photographer Michael S. Williamson. williamson won the Pulitzer Prize 1990 with another book about homelessness in the USA. these pictures company a little story about the dog in the book. they are very emotive and sad images of old dogs. I think they  feel very real the black and white adds to this sad feeling. I hope to make images that aren’t as depressing and how the life in the dogs. but these images have been of great help to me in deciding on what I think makes a great emotive portrait. The grey nose of the dog is something that nearly all the dogs have in common and it is a great indicator that the dog is older as dogs don’t really get wrinkles.
