Portraits of Dogs With Human-Like Expressions

Is it just us or do most of these dogs look incredibly serious? Hamburg, Germany-based photographer Ralph Hargarten is behind this intriguing new series called A Dog’s Life where he’s shot portraits of dogs with facial expressions we often attribute to humans. Set against a simple black background, each of the dogs lets his own personality shine through. (Love the suspicious-looking pug, above.)

“Greta, Fay, Jannis, Clinton and so on,” Hargarten states. “Most dogs have human names, so why not shooting them like humans. In my pictures I tried to catch different expressions as I would do with people as well. These are the results.”

Of course, if you want to see cute dogs in hilarious, human-like situations you can always check out these by Ron Schmidt.
