    Henry Horenstein, that’s who. A master photographer, his black and white photographs are studies in light, shadow and texture. Horenstein, whose evocative book “Creatures” made artworks of crocodile teeth and fish lips, has captured in “Canine” the very Essence of Dog. A must-have for any dog lover, or photography buff.

    This is a fantastic book of photography, dogs or not. Great use of depth of field and composition. I think that anyone who’s into photography will enjoy this.

    As for the content itself, the subject is treated much better and maturely than a typical “dog photo book”. The artistic sensibility is more akin to an ueber-realistic photojournalism than a cutesy pin-up calendar.

    Wonderfully entertaining browsing for all dog owners, January 16, 2001

    Canine showcases fifty black and white photographs by Henry Horenstein of different dogs at work and play. All of the canine emotions are captured through an artistic lens with pictures of dogs flying through the air, napping on the sofa, at dog shows, or just showing off. Interspersed with the photos are appropriately quirky snippets of text drawn from such diverse but thematically appropriate sources as Jean-Paul Sartre, Richard Nixon, Thomas Mann, and nineteenth-century dog trainers. Canine is wonderfully entertaining browsing for all dog owners, trainers, and enthusiasts.
