Australian Mongrel PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Australian Mongrel free pdf Australian Mongrel is a photographic exploration of Australia's relationship with this beloved icon. Renowned photographer David Darcy explores the lives of a diverse range of dogs from the land down under, from working dogs to suburban canines, Aboriginal camp dogs to the ordinary Aussie mongrel. Accompanying the dogs is a cross-section of people who share their lives with man's best friend, and the many stories and yarns that go with them. Featuring ordinary working folk, mums and dads, indigenous people and countless other characters, their narratives are often funny, sometimes heroic, frequently heartfelt and moving, but always worth telling. Australian Mongrel is also a showcase of the Australian landscape. Dogs play the lead role, but it is the combination of canine personality, the relationship between location, human and animal, that allows a true connection with these distinctive, nostalgic and honest portraits.
