While on assignment one day, fashion photographer Torkil Gudnason stumbled into a dog show and was struck by similarities between the coiffed pups and their owners. “Our dogs really are reflections of us,” he says. Captivated by these doggy doppelgangers, Torkil began this series of hilarious portraits of plucky pugs in emeralds and fro-tastic poodles. How do the dogs compare to the models he photographs for VOGUE? “There really isn’t much difference,” he says. “You have to be patient and quick. They may look like they’re sitting still, but their expressions change faster than anything.”

I feel bad for these dogs. It doesn't make this any less hilarious though.

Oh dear. I am sitting here very uncomfortable. Ummm.... I swear one day we'll have to answer for the humiliation we put dogs through. ps.. love your tags. You are such a Gemini. Wait, are you?

These photos are great. I like how the dog on the right in the top photo is showing us just exactly how much he's enjoying wearing his wig.

LOVE. This reminds me of those crazy segments on Sesame Street back in the day with the dogs that were dressed up in human clothes and human hands. lol crazy crazy. I totally agree that owners are usually reflected in their pets and vice versa.

Much Love,
Trissta

yah....Im gonna have to go with No on this one.

That boy pug's little red lipstick is peeping out at me and its creeping me out.

Wigs creep me out too, so it's just too much uncomfortable for my taste.

It's like they were always meant to have hairstyles! Why don't dogs always look like this!!??

Aline said...

that's really funny, I like these a lot. And interesting that there's not much difference between the models and dogs.

Kristine said...

Those are some good looking dogs! I am such an easy mark, take a photo of a dog doing anything and I am happy.
