观念艺术家、摄影师Keith Arnatt于1976年至1979年间创作了“Walking the Dog”系列作品,主人牵着狗以同样的姿态出现在不同的环境中,神奇的是,四只眼睛都直盯盯的望着镜头,非常有喜感。人们都说狗和主人长得像,不知道Keith Arnatt拍这个系列的初衷是否是为了验证此观点?

Keith Arnatt’s series, Walking the Dog, as we see a typology of dog owners alongside their dogs. Both dog and owner have their eyes to the camera, which shows a lot of skill on Arnatt’s part, but also brings a comedic element into the work. Our mind starts to try and see similarities between the dog and their owner, going with the idea that dogs look like their owners. Arnatt was a conceptual artist, using photography.
