I have often wondered what goes through the minds of animals – in particular dogs. What we do to please the dog…….I actually wonder how much the dog contemplates about humouring us!! I am not a mental health specialist, I am a photographer, so this is the theme of my exhibition during June 2018. I have already had a couple of outings with this at club level to garner reactions – and the best have been from dog-lovers themselves as they appreciate the fact more than others that dogs are not just inanimate objects.

I was glad to have had a selection of these images up during June 2018 at the Phoenix Cinema in East Finchley (London, UK). The Archer Newspaper which reports on the area gave a good review noting how many dog lovers there are in East Finchley. Special Thanks also goes to Jessica Kimmel Manelis who owns and runs the J Mane Gallery in New Jersey (USA). A couple of years later, I had asked for her thoughts on how to move things further with this selection and in August 2020, a showing of these images were on her website under the heading ‘A Dog’s Eye View’. I would have been extremely happy anyway but as Covid-19 was playing havoc on any physical exhibition work during 2020 I am extra grateful to Jessica
