As a National Geographic photographer, traveling the world to capture the beauty of lions, tigers, and bears was a regular day’s work for Vincent Musi. All that changed when his son turned sixteen and he was inspired to try something different; to cultivate his roots at home and open a hometown studio to photograph dogs.
The result is The Year of the Dogs; over 100 one-of-a-kind dogs from Musi’s year in the studio matched with witty dogographies gleaned from his time spent with each subject. From a Labrador that likes opera to a kleptomaniac miniature golden doodle, and a lovable one-eyed Jack Russell to a farting bulldog, Musi captures the unique character and personality of these everyday dogs with 190 evocative images and a gently comic mash-up of his own personal life experiences. Presented in an elegant package that showcases the vitality of Musi’s photos, The Year of the Dogs will be the perfect gift book for dog lovers that they will return to again and again.
