These Revealing Photos Of Good Dogs Show Their True Inner Selves
By pairing each dog with objects that are specific to their lifestyles, these portraits let you see the real pup behind the picture.
Los Angeles lifestyle and dog photographer Alicia Rius has spent her career finding new ways to capture the unique personalities of the animals she photographs.
Her new "A Dog's Life" series does that in a surprising and effective way: By immersing the viewer in the dog's own world through the lens of objects and possessions that closely reflect his or her personality.
Just like people, dogs form attachments to the objects that fill up their lives, and the way they interact with those objects provides an insight into each pup's lifestyle and personality that goes beyond anything a traditional portrait could accomplish.
