‘”The dog looks ugly,” I hear more often when I show my snapshot pictures with treats. Then mostly by people who do not have dogs. For me, however, the pictures have their own magic. After more than 500 developed snapshots I know: they bring dogs even closer to our hearts.
In the snapshot, we experience our best friends as we rarely can in everyday life: In their faces, we recognize panic, joy, fear of loss, sheer desire and the peak of pleasure – this is great Hollywood style cinema, as we otherwise only of people know. It’s a little revelation: the dog shows us human sides and may be a dog at the same time. Therefore, for me a snapshot is not just a funny picture – it is simply doping for the heart.’ – Christian Vieler
