These photographs aren’t really about dogs. They’re really about relationships. Deep ones. So deep that a man inked his deceased dog’s likeness onto his chest. So deep, another man admitted his dog feels closer to him at times than his wife and kids. So deep that one woman responded to my question, ‘What would your life be like without her?’ with ‘I would have no life without her.’ These dual portraits were made in and around New York City’s Tompkins Square Park during 2016.
