Original, amusing, and brilliantly documented, Shake is a heartwarming collection of sixty-one beguiling dogs caught in the most candid of moments: mid-shake. This glorious, graphic volume will stop you dead in your tracks as you are presented with images of man's best friend caught in contortion: hair wild, eyes darting, ears and jowls flopping every which way.
With Shake, photographer Carli Davidson proves how eager and elated we are to see our pets in new ways. The result is a one-of-a-kind book: a colorful assemblage of photographs that are simultaneously startling and endearing, consistently hard to look away from, and revealing.
Carli Davidson is a crazy cat lady. She talks to her own cat, Yushi, more than any other creature on the planet and is pretty much always covered in cat hair. She lives in Portland, Oregon, with her husband, Tim, pets Saul and Yushi, and a rotating cast of foster animals.
