I, Jack Russell: A Photographer and a Dog’s Eye View
Through the ups and downs of life, sometimes it’s your dog that seems to know who you are, what you do and understand things you do not even know about yourself.’ This thought and the fact that he had many more photographs of his dogs than his family and friends, led photographer Andy Hughes to this visual exploration of the relationship between dogs and their human companions and how they are increasingly integrated and implicated in each other’s lives. I, Jack Russell is a journey of discovery that will enthral dog lovers everywhere. This joyous enterprise is accompanied by short excerpts from psychologist Alexandra Horowitz’s best-selling book Inside of a Dog: What Dogs See, Smell and Know as well as a specially commissioned foreword from Dr John Bradshaw and Hughes’ own stories of dogs he has met along the way. Originally bred as hunting dogs in England in the 19th century and still used as working dogs today, Jack Russells are sturdy, tough, tenacious, intelligent, athletic, fearless and vocal animals, happy to engage with the human race.
