A Photographic Breed GuideBook - 2010
The British are renowned for their love of dogs - an obsession matched by dog owners in the US. Westminster is the US equivalent to Crufts, and has attracted huge audiences since 1877. In 2005, Life magazine assigned photographer Kate Lacey to this unique show. Instead of walking around Madison Square Garden documenting the scene, Kate Lacey rigged up a seamless backdrop to make elegant portraits, much as Richard Avedon once captured glamorous celebrities. Each dog is captured in a lucid portrait shimmering with personality.
