Martin Usborne’s new photographic exhibition, The Silence of Dogs in Cars, is now on display at the Little Black Gallery in London. Usborne’s photographs focus on the ever-curious relationship between humans and other animals. The Silence of Dogs in Cars was inspired by a childhood memory of waiting in a car whilst his parents were shopping in a supermarket, and the youthful fear that they would not return. He will be signing copies of his book of the same name, which was awarded ‘Best in Show’ in the Creative Review Photography Annual, on Saturday 23rd March from 11:30am-12:30pm. The exhibition is on show until 27th April. The Little Black gallery is located at 13A Park Walk, London SW10 0AJ.

Martin Usborne: The Silence of Dogs in Cars

The Little Black Gallery is proud to present Martin Usborne’s The Silence of Dogs in Cars from 19 March to 27 April 2013.

Martin will be signing copies of his book of the same name on Saturday 23 March from 11:30am-12:30pm

Martin Usborne’s photographs focus on the ever-curious relationship between humans and other animals. The Silence of Dogs in Cars was inspired by a childhood memory of waiting in a car whilst his parents were shopping in a supermarket, and the youthful fear that they would not return.

His “photographs are haunted by questions of muteness. Through Usborne’s lens, it appears that the dog left in the car speaks volumes that we cannot (or will not) hear”.

Usborne’s book The Silence of Dogs in Cars was awarded ‘Best in Show’ in the Creative Review Photography Annual 2012. He was also the recipient of the 2009 Taylor Wessing Award at the National Portrait Gallery for his photograph “Tiger, Rag, Johnny and Emma”.

He is currently working on his new project:
A Year To Help: How Many Animals Can 1 Man Save in 365 Days?

He lives in East London with his wife and their two dogs.

Beautiful photos, but as they were all set up and shot in the studio/controlled circumstances it's to be expected. I would have found the project more interesting if the shots had been taken in a candid way on the street, observed, rather than constructed.
