The Silence of Dogs in Cars


The Silence of Dogs in Cars Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Martin Usborne's photo series consists of over forty-five images of dogs gazing silently through car windows, often in the dead of night. The images, which are staged and highly cinematic, evoke a mood of loneliness and longing. They are not so much portraits of dogs as studies in separation: on one level referring to the separation between humans and (other) animals but on another the separation within ourselves, between our everyday selves and the rawer (more animal) parts that we keep locked away. The photographs draw on the work of Edward Hopper and Gregory Crewdson.


Intense and highly cinematic portraits of dogs gazing silently through car windows – emotive and amusing
