We love this project by Brit photographer Martin Usborne and the honest account of how it came about. It’s already had press coverage and accolades from the likes of David Alan Harvey; everybody (except one of the authors of this blog) loves dogs, so get funding.
“Dogs in cars – why on earth?? When I first had the idea five years ago I thought it was foolish. Dogs in cars? errrr..
But the best ideas are the ones that stay with you and after many years of being lodged in my subconscious this one eventually had to come out barking. I now realize the pictures come from fairly deep fears I’ve had of being alone and without a voice (I found it almost impossible to express myself when I was a kid) and also from my early fascination with animals, dogs in particular, who also seemed vulnerable and somehow mute.”
