Sit, Stay, Shoot
Canine photographers take a bite out of Walker Evans.

They act. They paint. So photography is not really any great leap. But the results are astonishing when small 5mp digital cameras with automatic timers are attached to the collars of six Pike County dogs.
 
The “phoDOGraphers” spent about one week capturing rural Georgia from a canine point of view in approximately 1,000 images each. Thirty exhibition images were chosen based on originality, technical execution and individual style, and are on display at the Whiskey Bonding Barn in Molena, Ga. (one hour south of the Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport), this weekend, Sept. 26-27, from noon to 5 p.m. Admission is free.

The phoDOGraphy Show” is presented by SlowExposures, a nationally recognized photo exhibition held annually in Pike County as part of a fundraiser to support the preservation of the historical and cultural heritage of the rural south through contemporary photography. All proceeds from “The phoDOGraphy Show” go to Pike Preservation and local pet rescue. For more information, please visit www.slowexposures.org or contact Slow Exposures at 770.567.3600.

Very cool idea. I've often wondered what dogs see and smell ... what a fun way to see the dog's-eye-view of the world.
