Dogs can be faithful companions, this is a confirmed fact. An excellent example is Troja - a red-haired Irish setter dog who has a real passion for travels and adventures in its blood. Troja’s owner, George Rotan is from Norway and publishes on Instagram quite extraordinary pictures of his pet made during their hikes together. We cannot decide who...
A world without chickens? Sounds inconceivable! Chicken have always been an important part of our culture and everyday life. In addition to the obvious and well-known benefits - like, of course, their delicious meat, the indispensable eggs and the occasional function of rooster cries as a natural retro alarm clock - we often forget that the animals are even...
As the master is, so is his dog... If we believe the following photographic series, this saying has never been so accurate. These amazing portraits of likeness were created by British photographer Gerrard Gethings, known for his pictures of animals full of character. The resemblances between a master and his dog are much more numerous than we suspect: first physical...
Thai photographer Visarute Angkatavanich creates magnificently hued portraits that look more like choreographed dance shots than animal photography. Only when the viewers look directly at the bug-eyed expressions of the subjects of those photos, we notice those are fish, not ballerinas in dancer costumes. Angkatavanich makes portraits of Siamese fighting fish (also called betta) against black&white backgrounds to isolate their...

It was in...
For several decades, pioneering video artist, conceptualist, photographer, painter and writer William Wegman created photographic portraits of his Weimaraners, dogs with gray dresses and sad looks. Behind this iconic photo project today hides a story more than anodyne. In the late 1960s, Wegman was a professor of art at a Wisconsin university while working as an artist. He painted, maked...
Plankton are heterogeneous, small organisms that are unable to resist the current. Because of this, plankton always drifts in the water. Plankton is a mass of plants and animals, most of which have microscopic dimensions: they can be bacteria, mollusks, crustaceans, eggs and larvae of fish, larvae of various invertebrate animals. A photographer from Japan, Ryo Minemizu, has devoted his...
A good-hearted US photographer called Ricki Beason just released a calendar for 2019, and the main stars in it are dogs and men from the neighborhood. The calendar is called 'Dad Bods and Dogs' and proceeds from its sale will go to three dog shelters near Dallas, Texas. Ricki chose male models with a so-called 'dad bod' — men who...
