The Art of the Personal Project is a crucial element to let potential buyers see how you think creatively on your own. I am drawn to personal projects that have an interesting vision or that show something I have never seen before. In this thread, I’ll include a link to each personal project with the artist statement so you can see more of the project. Please note: This thread is not affiliated with any company; I’m just featuring projects that I find. Please DO NOT send me your work. I do not take submissions.

“Canine Cool: A Pawsome Partnership”
In “Canine Cool,” we explore the remarkable bond between humans and their four-legged companions, revealing dogs in a light that showcases their undeniable coolness, style, and human-like qualities. This photographic series is a celebration of the profound connection we share with these incredible creatures who have earned their place as the best partners a human could have.
Through our lens, we capture moments of pure charisma and charm as dogs exude an effortless coolness that mirrors the traits we often associate with the most stylish and composed of humans. Whether they’re sporting a pair of sunglasses, working on a vintage muscle car, or simply watching a scary movie with their humans, these images challenge the traditional notion of a dog’s role as a mere pet.
Each photograph tells a story of companionship, loyalty, and a unique partnership that transcends words. These dogs are more than just pets; they are friends, confidants, and trusted allies. In their eyes, we see a reflection of ourselves, and in their gestures, we find gestures of love, understanding, and shared adventures.
“Canine Cool” invites viewers to step into a world where dogs take center stage, not as subjects to be photographed, but as co-stars in the narrative of our lives. As we explore the stylish and human-like qualities of these remarkable animals, we are reminded of the unwavering companionship they offer, the smiles they bring, and the joy they infuse into our everyday existence.
Ultimately, this series serves as a tribute to the remarkable dogs who enrich our lives with their unconditional love and remind us daily that the best partner a human could have is often found on four paws. Through “Canine Cool,” we hope to evoke a sense of appreciation for the extraordinary bond we share with our canine companions and inspire others to cherish the moments of coolness, style and love they bring to our lives.
