Dogs left in cars

April 2, 2011 § 4 Comments

Drawing from his own experience of being left in a car (for a while) by his parents as a child and his affinity for animals (and, I am guessing, powered by his Psychology degree), London-based photographer Martin Usborn photographs dogs left waiting in cars.

The series, called Mute: the silence of dogs in cars is full of melancholy and emanates a sense of abandonment and almost existential loneliness. The fear of being left alone, for ever. The fear of not being heard. Almost nightmarish.

In the photographer’s words: “The camera is the perfect tool for capturing a sense of silence and longing: the shutter freezes the subject for ever and two layers of glass are placed between the viewer and the viewed: the glass of the lens, the glass of the picture frame and, in this instance, the glass of the car window further isolates the animal. The dog is truly trapped”.
