A “Dry Dog Wet Dog” Photo Series by Serena Hodson

A

Australian photographer Serena Hodson has created a new series of diptychs which documents dogs while both dry and wet. Aptly titled “Dry Dog Wet Dog”, the idea for the series came about while Hodson was washing her own dogs – a British bulldog named Simon and a French bulldog named Garfunkel – and noticed how being wet brought out different elements of their personalities. “I think any time humans can identify with an animal’s personality it creates compassion and respect,” Hodson says. “Which is always a positive thing.”

Take a look at the series below and see more of Hodson’s work here.
