Ike - 1999 - 2010



Today my brother’s dog Ike was put to sleep. He was a few months shy of his twelfth birthday, and actually has played an important role in my photographic development.

After I graduated college, I was lived with my parents for a few years in my hometown which has a population of next to nothing. I spent a good deal of time watching over my brother’s dogs, and used them as my photographic subject during a lot of the experimenting/learning I was going through at the time. A lot of film was exposed on good old Ike as I taught myself how to use my Speed Graphic hand held for action photography, and while I was doing my initial experiments of converting my Olympus Trip 35 into a manual mode camera.

In memoriam, here are some of the images I’ve snapped of Ike over the years.
