" one is more aware of the power of dogs to captivate modern culture than Lara Jo Regan." --David Schonauer, Pro Photo Daily
"...captures American dog culture in a riotous, refreshing light..." --Carolyn Mullin, Founder, Museum of Animal Art
"Extraordinary, unique, uncommon, exceptional, singular, and thoroughly entertaining." --Midwest Book Review "Photojournalist Regan (Dogs in Cars,2014, etc.) reveals the secret, joyful world of beach dogs. This book features canines of various shapes and sizes frolicking and dancing through ocean waves. Regan captures them all in telling photos that showcase the animals' spirits and characters. She's had a career of shooting pictures for such magazines as Time, Newsweek, and Life, but she came into national prominence in the early 2000s when her images of her tiny, mixed-breed pooch, Mr. Winkle, created a viral internet sensation. Like photographer William Wegman, whose famous images of Weimaraners show their affective complexity, Regan capably portrays the sophisticated emotional intelligence of her subjects. In numerous photos, shot on beaches in California, Florida, and South Carolina, the author renders a surprising variety of canine moods and relationships, often using a subtle fill flash to emphasize animals' expressions. In an introduction, she reveals that "Photographing the sensuous, exhilarating bliss of dogs interacting with sand, surf and the humans and friends they love, up close and personal, over several years, profoundly deepened my own appreciation of the beach and its eternal gifts." The book has no page numbers, but its offbeat design suits the subject matter: The canines' names appear discreetly at the bottoms of pages, and, other than location names, no other text interrupts the flow of the dogand beach imagery. However, in the back of the book, the author offers a guide to dog breeds and a page of safety tips for those who might want to enjoy a day atthe beach with their own pets. An irresistible photo book that portrays canine euphoria amid sand and surf." - Kirkus Reviews
