PARDON ME LADY, BUT YOU HAVE A LOT OF DOG HAIRS ON YOUR COAT
(Click images to enlarge.)
“Dog Wool” is photography series by Erwan Fichou, portraying women and men across Europe that recollect their dogÂ´s hair and make coats and sweaters out of it, for personal use. And possibly for an extra dose of bonding too.
(Erwan took the TÃ³xico Martin Parr & Chris Boot workshop.)
“The animal envoys of the Unseen Power no longer serve, as in primeval times, to teach and to guide mankind. Bears, lions, elephants, ibexes, and gazelles are in cages in our zoos. Man is no longer the newcomer in a world of unexplored plains and forests, and our immediate neighbors are not wild beasts but other human beings, contending for goods and space on a planet that is whirling without end around the fireball of a star. Neither in body nor in mind do we inhabit the world of those hunting races of the Paleolithic millennia, to whose lives and life ways we nevertheless owe the very forms of our bodies and structures of our minds.”
-The Power of Myth, by Joseph Campbell-
