|Over the years, countless photography books have been published featuring shots of impossibly cute puppies, precocious kittens, and just about every other pet variety. And yet, our pets are even funnier and stranger than we know, if only we could see the world through their eyes. In PetCam, author Chris Keeney (Pinhole Cameras) presents the first book-length collection of stills created by an international roster of four-legged photographers. With small, lightweight cameras on their collars and cowbells, these intrepid shutterbugs document their world as they go about their daily routines, lounging under cars, scaling rooftops, jumping fences, relaxing on a neighbor s lawn. By turns striking, curious, and just plain amusing, PetCam showcases the work of twenty creative pets, along with humorous and sometimes outrageous artistic statements describing the work in the animals own voices. Featured animals include Coulee, a Border collie golden retriever mix from Alberta, Canada; Fritz, a tabby cat living in the Ore Mountains of Germany; Walter and Hamlet, brother and sister miniature potbellied pigs from San Diego; and Sofie, a Galloway cow, who spends her days roaming the Swiss Alps. PetCam also includes tips and resources for readers who want to introduce their own pets to the joy of photography.
Chris Keeney is the author of Pinhole Cameras: A Do-It-Yourself Guide and a professional photographer who lives and works in San Diego, California
