Dogs and humans have been so closely linked for so many thousands of years, that some experts believe we may have evolved together. Whether or not this proves to be so, it is certainly true that, for better or worse, our interdependence cannot be untangled. On one level of existence we are meant to be together.
In this new collection Libby Hall once again delves into her vast archive to bring us more enchanting photographs of people and their dogs. Ranging in date from 1855 to 1940, and in format from cartes de visite and cabinet cards to studio portraits and the scruffiest of snapshots, Prince and Other Dogs II is a poignant testimony to the unchanging nature of the human-canine relationship. Each one of these photographs, whether funny or sad, odd or beautiful, demonstrates clearly the mutual feelings of love and loyalty timelessly displayed by both Man and Dog.
