Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Since the wolf first snuck into the caves of our ancestors to take warmth from the fire, dogs have been mans constant companion. Dogs, multi-award-winning photographer Tim Flach's stunning follow-up to the critically acclaimed Equus, delves deep into the psyche of this enduring bond with Canis familiaris to present an exquisite study of “mans best friend.”

From specimens on show at Crufts and Westminster to shelter dogs lovingly rescued by volunteers; from the grace and agility of racing greyhounds to adored domestic companions; from Afghan hounds to Hungarian komondors to Chinese crested, the images featured in Dogs promise to deliver one of the most appealing, popular, and exciting photographic tributes to dogs ever published.

Review:

"The dogs he captures in these pages are, by turns, soulful, expressive, and winsome — and all of them are stunning." Entertainment Weekly

Review:

"This book will appeal to all ages. I know this because it was lying around our house on Thanksgiving Day and everyone wanted a look at it — from college-age to senior citizen. They all oohed and aahed. If you're a dog lover, or even a dog liker, it's a keeper." The Christian Science Monitor

Review:

"Featuring profiles of dozens of canines, Dogs is a divine collection of images that spotlights the endearing characteristics of different pooches, elevating them to divine status. Whether it's a troubled-looking Bloodhound or a demure Dalmatian, Flach's subjects establish a direct connection with the viewer, dog-lover or otherwise." Flavorwire.com

Synopsis:

Multi-award-winning photographer Flach's stunning follow-up to the critically acclaimed Equus, presents an exquisite study of "man's best friend."

Synopsis:

Award-winning photographer Tim Flach has spent years inquiring into the essential bond we have with animals. Now he presents the culmination of a career-long endeavor, an extraordinary body of work in which each image is more striking and powerful than the last.

Just as did Flachandrsquo;s highly acclaimed previous books, Equus and Dogs, More than Human will amaze and inspire, in a constant affirmation of the animal, whether it be rare or common, powerful or defenseless, odd or majestic. The book showcases a menagerie of creaturesandmdash;pandas, tigers, bats, lions, orangutans, cobras, bullfrogs, chimpanzees, wolves, porcupines, elephants, owls, armadillos, among many othersandmdash;as they have never been seen before. Shedding light on Flachandrsquo;s images will be an accessible collection of texts, written and edited by author Lewis Blackwell.

Praise for More Than Human:

andldquo;A gallery of animal portraits that are unlike anything weandrsquo;ve seen before.andrdquo; andmdash;The Wall Street Journal

andldquo;His technique is impeccable; this is one of the most gorgeous photography books of the year. But what makes it more than a coffee-table trifle is the way Flachandrsquo;s images connect usandmdash;with near-tactile sensation and soulfulnessandmdash;to the creatures on display.andrdquo; andmdash;NPR.org

andldquo;Arresting portraits that express photographer Flachandrsquo;s andlsquo;sense of wonderment in nature.andrsquo;andrdquo; andmdash;People

andquot;Astoundingly sharp images.andquot; - The San Francisco Chronicle

andldquo;Compelling and unexpected.andrdquo; andmdash;The Denver Post

andldquo;Treat yourself to the full glory of More Than Human, for the screen hardly does it justice.andrdquo; andmdash;Brain Pickings.com

andldquo;A book of animal photographs guaranteed to dazzle viewers with their color, detail, clarity and, most of all, their uncanny andlsquo;humanity.andrsquo;andrdquo;-- BookPage

Christy Davis, January 6, 2011 (view all comments by Christy Davis)
This gorgeous oversized photography book is a breakthrough achievement in showing the unique beauty of each depicted dog. Tim Flach's triumph is in capturing the essence; kinetic, textural, behavioral, that reaveals why dogs remain our best friends.
