Sebastian Magnani - Underdogs

Photographer, Sebastian Magnani, takes the saying that dogs look like their owners to a whole other level with his series, Underdogs.

He says, "I first started the project in August 2009. As soon as I had the idea, it had pretty much already been realised, namely to photograph dogs with their owners. So where does this striking resemblance between dog and owner come from? Does the "underdog" really rank himself lower, even visually? I like the idea of hierarchy in different ways like the system, politics and all this stuff in combination. That was really important for the name for this project; in both a psychological and philosophical way. Dogs are considered loyal, selfless, trustworthy, life saving, fun and proud companions in a world where these values are gradually disappearing. It is undisputed that the canines not only stir emotions and interest, but also our inner most needs."
