Since the wolf first snuck into the caves of our ancestors to take warmth from the fire, dogs have been man's constant companion.
In this stunning follow-up to the critically acclaimed EQUUS, multi award-winning photographer Tim Flach again sets out to document human-animal relationships to provide a unique perspective on one of our closest companions.
From the exquisite specimens on show at Crufts and Westminster to shelter dogs lovingly rescued by volunteers; from the grace and agility of racing greyhounds to adored domestic companions; from Afghan hounds to Hungarian komondors to Chinese crested, once again Tim Flach delves deep into the psyche of our enduring bond with Canis familiaris to provide a unique and exquisite insight into 'man's best friend'.
