Photographer Takes Portraits Of Dogs That Are Perfectly Imperfect

Meet Bali Pip, the playful pup rescued from the streets of Bali suffering from mange; blind but loyal Shazza; Raul, who takes his partial paralysis in his stride; and many more in a new book by award-winning animal photographer Alex Cearns. Based on an original photo series launched on Bored Panda, these portraits of perfectly imperfect dogs will uplift and inspire, finding a special place in your heart with their ability to overcome physical adversity. Cearns artfully captures their intrinsic beauty and spirit; their sweetness, resilience and strength.

“One of my most passionate aims as an animal photographer is to capture the adorable subtleties that make all creatures precious and unique. I love every animal I have the privilege of photographing, but those perceived as different hold a special place in my heart. These are the canines who have lost a leg, been born without eyes, or are still showing the scars of former abuse,” says Cearns. “Most animals with ‘afflictions’ don’t dwell on them. They adapt to their bodies without complaint and they survive with determination. They push on, always, wanting to be included and involved in everything as much as they can, and as much as an able-bodied pet does.”

“The tenacity of animals to overcome adversity never ceases to amaze me. They make the most out of life and from them I have learnt so much about always seeing the positive in every situation and never giving up.”

‘Perfect Imperfection – Dog portraits of Resilience’ and love is available from 19th March 2018 and is a book for everyone who loves dogs; fans of the Japanese concept of wabi-sabi, or of seeing the beauty in imperfection; and anyone who needs a hit of inspiration. Part proceeds from every sale will be donated to the Australian Animal Cancer Foundation to help them work towards finding a cure for canine cancer.

Our Dog Was Getting A Human Sister, So I Built Her A Room Under The Stairs It Turned Out Better Than Expected

Molly the Westie found out she was going to be a big sister to a little human so I decided to build her a room of her own under the stairs before the baby arrived.

Nothing existed there before, it was walled-in. I wasn’t sure how big the space was, or if it would even be possible, so was very happy with the end result… as was Molly!

We are currently doing well in the myBuilder ‘Project of the Year 2017’ competition and you can vote for me here if you like it!

Molly in her new, finished room

She is the best wee dog who had been very spoiled up to this point, so we didn’t want her to feel less important when the baby arrived!

And here is the proud big sister with baby Catelyn!

Starting point… I thought there might be dead space behind the stairs, but wasn’t sure. Trying to sneak a look

If it was going to work I also needed to move the wiring for the house alarm system. Decided to update the kitchen at the same time, by adding tongue & groove panels

Space cut out… I can now see what space we have to play with

Bigger than I thought, around 4 square metres

Most importantly… don’t want Molly to be scared of the space, so in for an early look. Definitely going to be big enough!

Door frame fitted in keeping with the internal joinery, base of frame kept in place as integral to support staircase

Plasterboard fitted, starting to look like a room

In for a sniff and helping with the plastering/sealing

Feature wallpaper gives an idea of what’s coming next

View from inside the room

Colour changing mood lighting installed

Molly waiting patiently as I had to finish the tongue and groove outside her room first

Flooring goes down

And skirtings for the awkwardly shaped walls!

Custom signs

Molly still waiting patiently, has taken the new couch in the meantime

So I bought her one for her new room

Finishing touches, photo frames and luxury bed

Pictures of Molly at school with her friends

All moved in, proud as punch!

Posing in her new space

Loves the cosy corner

Finishing touches with her sign and peronalised leash/harness hook

Luckily she likes her new home better than the one in the garden!

Help Us! Our Father Is A Photographer!

Usually, it’s a gradual transition, you go from zero kids to one kid to two. Gives you time to get used to the havoc. But sometimes, God blesses you with twins, going from zero to two (or rather zero to hundred) in a split of a second. You can either get buried under the mess or…

Or try to get the best out of it and transform your kids lives into a roller coaster of impossible scenarios. This is exactly what me and my wife did.

As a photographer, I want my kids to have the best pictures possible and only my wife and I can do that. This project started with just one picture and now it has a life of its own.

No kids nor animals were put in danger or discomfort while taking the pictures.
