Under-dogs, Photos Captured from a New Perspective
A new perspective can change everything about a subject. These photographs were shot by Andrius Burba and definitely add perspective! Andrius has done similar projects like Under-cats, Under-rabits and Under-horse which all display more animals from underneath on a black background. This has become his signature work. Here is what Andrius Burba had to say about his project. Enjoy the photos!
Andrius Burba presenting the Under-dogs project:
This time it is dog lovers’ turn! The actual project was photographed a year ago. However, we were patiently waiting until now as we wanted to present the results along with the publication of Under-dogs book.
This project is most comparable with the Under-Cats. Cats were very cute but dogs are more playful. Dogs are more obedient which helps us to create more interesting shots. While some dogs were playful on the ground they have completely changed on the glass and stood still like a rock. Others weren’t afraid of standing above which was easy and fun to work with. I learned two main things from these photo shoots. First, cats think they are gods, since people feed, love and give them homes. Secondly, dogs see human as a god as they feed, love and give them homes. Probably you had to read that twice.
For the Under-dogs project I have designed a specially manufactured glass table in order to photograph bigger dogs. After capturing Under-dogs, I decided to go full-time on the following projects of Underlook. In our future plans – Tigers.
