Dogs As Seen By A Dutchman: Maarten Wetsema's Fab Photos




It was quite by accident that I came upon photographer Maarten Wetsema's site and I'm quite happy I did. As a huge dog lover and a furniture and photography fan, his work struck me on many levels.

With four collections of photographs; Daan and Jacob, Dogs in their Domestic Environments, Portraits of Dog and Dogshoots, he captures the canine at their goofiest, yet manages to maintain the dog's dignity and beauty.

Below are a few of my favorites from all the aforementioned collections.

Fabulous! And not just because he shot all three of my breeds (his Beauty, Diego and Chakra are Maggie, Georgia and Truffaut!). Sadly, sofas and chairs are off limits for my pups so they best not see this and get any ideas.
