Mercy, 2017 I’m spending this Year of the Dog by photographing dogs, mostly by commission by private owners. Mercy is a Briard, a beautiful almost alien-like creature. They are an ancient French breed of sheep herding dog owned by everyone from Napoleon to Thomas Jefferson.
Thanks so sending me your dog pictures and suggestions, I’m touched by your outreach and kind words about this work. I wish I could travel to every place suggested and photograph all of the incredible animals. #yearofthedog
