The exhibition of around 20 photographs – some of them over 2m wide – is more than a showcase of dogs, big and small, flatcoat and frizzy haired. Through his photography, Tim explores the intimate relationship between man and dog. A closer look at many images, meanwhile, will raise to some potentially disturbing questions. The apparent alertness of the slick Dobermann, for example, is in actual fact due to his surgically altered ear shape, while the overgrooming of showcase dogs reveals an uncomfortable reminder of man imposing his will on the animal world.
Tim says he is interested in “how much we modify and manipulate nature”. Dogs, he insists, represent the oldest of the domesticated relationships and perhaps the most remarkable.
