SlowExposures goes to the dogs

Presented in conjunction with SlowExposures 2009, the nationally recognized photo exhibition held annually in Pike County, the new The phoDOGraphy Show showcases a collection of photographs taken by dogs. ’Yes, dogs,’ says curator, Jan Fields. ‘Six canine phoDOGraphers were asked to take phoDOGraphs where they like to play in and around their home.’ Equipped with cameras with an automatic timer that goes off every two seconds, this whimsical collection of 30 photographs looks at rural Georgia from a dog’s point of view. ’We used a very small digital camera attached to the dog’s collar under his or her chin and let them take to the streets to create a documentary centered around the theme ‘˜in my neighborhood,” she said. Each dog owner was given abut a week to complete the assignment and the pho-DOGraphers took about 1,000 images each. Final exhibition images were chosen based on originality, technical execution and individual style.
