Winter Exhibition

A Dog’s Life

Solo exhibition by photographer John Slater

Open Mon—Sat 11am—5pm (and by appointment)

In his unique series ‘A Dog’s Life’, photographer John Slater has selected, sometimes at random and at times by design, a cross-section of people and their dogs in both urban and rural surroundings.

Slater’s eye has been drawn not necessarily by the look of the animal or person in question, but by an instinct honed from a lifetime of experience behind the camera, that detected the tangible, yet unspoken bond that exists between dog and owner. His portraits are spontaneous and honest, taken on the street, in a park, in the pub, or simply at home.

As a result, his unobtrusive observations have captured the essence of a special relationship that all of these people share with their dogs and reveal what makes each so important. His lens focuses unerringly on that individual connection, recognising the empathy, the humour, the exasperation, the joy and the love – pure and simple, that a dog brings into the life of its human friend.

With 35 very different portraits reflecting the lives of dogs and their owners, Slater has come away with one overriding impression. ‘The owners believe themselves to be in control, but it is in fact their dogs that are in charge!’
