Pet Shots

The images shown in this book were obtained from a small set of photos found in Rome, Italy. The set consists of fifty Polaroids portraying dogs of various breeds and sizes, all taken in the beginning of the 90s.

The pictures were shot in front of or around the same anonymous spot, an old and rusty picket fence somewhere in the backyard of a house in the roman suburbs. Each Polaroid was found attached to an index card, complete with the following information on the dog pictured: name, year of birth, breed, sex and name of the owner. It is not known why or for whom these photos were taken.
