A year or so back I started a personal photographic project to capture my greyhound girl Jasmine in her senior years, to abstract her essence and her mannerisms in a minimalist style. As the project developed, it has extended to other hounds too, going beyond the specifics of the subject to distill an essence of greyhounds as a breed.
Jasmine is in her fourteenth year now and even more frail than she was when we started this project, but we still sometimes find a moment for another image in this series, and I treasure the images more and more as the collection builds and as time goes by.
I offered a couple of these images as a fine art prints in some recent charity auctions for greyhound and whippet rescues, printed on beautiful fine art Platinum Baryta paper (Canson Infinity for the fine art paper junkies among you…) which is such a delight to work with. Several people since enquired about purchasing similar prints from the series so I decided to publish a small selection on my website here. If you keep a close eye on my current donations to charity auctions (follow me on Facebook or Twitter for the latest news), you might just pick up one of these or a new one from the series, as well as helping sighthounds in need.
