Dog eat dog...

I've just discovered a fine young photographer - Isabella Rozendaal. Dutch. I really like her funny, unfussy approach - her animal subjects exude anthropomorphic charm as well as a world-weariness... "Yup, we live with the humans, we adapt, no big deal," they seem to say... You can read her academic thesis which goes into some detail on themes found here. It's in Dutch, but that shouldn't stop you, should it? Here's what she says about it:

"I've researched the way people perceive animals and the way we depict them in art, photography and pop culture. The research is as much visual as it is theoretical."

Read/browse it here.

OK Isabella, you can join the club.
