A photographer gave a whole new meaning to the word underdog.
Andrius Burba of Lithuania has just released a series of photos titled “Under-Dogs,” in which he photographed dogs from, you guessed it, their underside.
Inspired by a previous series called “Under-Cats,” Burba photographed dogs in a similar fashion – shooting them from beneath a glass table. While the set up was the same, the experience was different.
“Cats think they are gods, since people feed, love and give them homes,” he says. “Dogs see humans as a god, as they feed, love and give them homes.”
Surprisingly, this made photographing cats a little easier, as they didn’t care about treats or people – they were just behaving how they normally would. Whereas, Burba was only able to photograph dogs in interesting poses because of treats.
“Dogs are dogs,” Burba tells This Dog’s Life. “They make our life more bright and beautiful.”
