Fun and unique portraits of dogs shaking, jowls flapping, and fur flying, SHAKE captures images of dogs transformed by the simple action of shaking off water. The results are a refreshing, original way to view our best friends and are undeniably funny and uplifting.
Photographer Carli Davidson presents us with over 130 full-page portraits, playful glimpses into typically the unseen movement of hair and skin that are impossible to look away from. HarperCollins/144 pages.
