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.
