The Public; it’s a dog. Or it will be, if Canadian dog photographer Shari Hatt can get her hands on West Bromwich’s local mutts and pooches. Hatt makes “unusual portrait images of dogs”, and is seeking 96 dogs to photograph at The Public in December 08…

“Owners will receive a copy of the portrait, and a selection from the overall studio will appear in the exhibition next year.”

Application form. Deadline: 31st October 08.

Personally, I might also like to see a photo-series of the hilarious toy robots vs. dogs face-offs that’ll be happening in the nation’s living rooms this Christmas. A new LOLpet sub-genre?
