These Photos Capture the Special Bond Humans and Dogs Share

Emanuela Colombo and Mario Forcherio are an Italian-based photographer duo and the creators of the project Dogs and Us Photography. According to the two, their photography journey began in 2009 when they have realized how valuable the dog-master relationship is.

“We have witnessed carousels of joy, fear, exuberance, gratitude, doubt, anger, amazement, patience and resignation,” the duo shared on Bored Panda. “Their faces turn into faces with human expressions, which we only need a small dose of sensitivity in order to read, and they become open books.”

Colombo and Forcherio share some of their work on social media and on their personal website.
