Award-winning photographer Martin Usborne will present a new solo exhibition, MUTE, at East London gallery theprintspace on Thursday October 21, 2010. The exhibition consists of photographic prints of dogs looking silently out of car windows in the dead of night. While you might think that this is a statement on leaving dogs in hot cars — it’s not. Rather, Martin is exploring the sense of loneliness and isolation that many humans (and animals) experience in modern times. These images are poignant and haunting.
The prints are for sale and 10% of proceeds are donated to the Dogs Trust to help its work rescuing and re-homing stray and abandoned dogs. Martin also has a book on dog photography that will be published next year. He is the owner of Moose, a Miniature Schnauzer.
