I received a copy of Under Dogs from NetGalley in exchange for a fair and honest review.

Under Dogs is a photography project completed by none other than Andrius Burba. I’m sure based on the cover and title it wouldn’t be hard to guess what it is all about, but it’s still such a sweet idea. Burba has gone ahead and photographed dogs from below – of all angles. The unique perspective is creative, odd, and at times downright hilarious (particularly depending on the dogs’ expressions).

Photographing a dog from below is an interesting concept. Burba didn’t do it halfway either – it appears that the dogs are placed on a (crystal clear) pane of glass, allowing him to get a full and perfect view of the complete underside of each dog he chose to photograph.

There are NUMBER of photos included, and they are all crisp and included a black backdrop – an ideal way to keep the focus on the main subject, the puppies! The confused and quizzical looking dogs were probably my favorites, though they’re all brilliant.

I haven’t seen much work by Burba in the past, but it’s clear I’m going to have to keep an eye out for their work from now on. They’ve proven that they can have creative (and cute) ideas and brilliant follow-through. I can’t wait to see what’s next.


About Liz

I am an avid animal lover, photographer, graphic designer, and much more. I love to create art, and am willing to try and artistic technique at least once. I am particularly fond of artworks involving a lot of emotion and color. The purpose of my blog is for me to be open and honest with myself and the world about my attempts to grow as an artist. The facts: My favorite color is constantly changing, so don’t worry about trying to keep up with that! I’m in my 20’s, married, and looking to find the perfect job for me (ideally something that can involve my creativity or my love of animals). I have 6 cats (If we’re being technical, I have 2 cats and my parents have 4), a bearded dragon, a parakeet, and two betas. I adore all of them, and they frequently are my photography models. My blog will primarily be consisting of my 365 (366) photography project, updated daily (hopefully). I’m also working on a 52 weeks project, where I try a new type of photography style or technique each week. That will be updated as the photos are processed.
