Where Hunting Dogs Rest

Where Hunting Dogs Rest is a beautiful photographic series by Martin Usborne of abandoned Spanish hunting dogs rendered in the painterly style of Velazquez.

“For many centuries hunters in rural Spain have used dogs, often greyhounds, to hunt wild animals across the winter landscape. In the 17th century these dogs were associated with nobility, protected by law and appearing in noblemens’ wills. But these dogs have had a dramatic fall from grace. Nowadays, at the end of the each hunting season in February, it is estimated that up to 100,000 dogs are abandoned or killed, considered too old or too slow for the next season…

A book of the project is due to be published in July 2016. You can order a copy here.
