While many pet photographers take portraits highlighting the outer beauty of canine companions, photographer Anne Geier captures something a little more–the intangible essence of man’s best friend. She also showcases the grace of a canine’s soul. Amidst the enchanting, Austrian wilderness, the artist photographs her subjects in a way that allows their personalities to shine through. She especially focuses on the animals’ profoundly expressive eyes to bring emotion into her work.
If Geier’s dog clients are the main attraction, then Mother Nature’s seasons are definitely a close second. In each photograph, the environment acts as a rich backdrop, with golden leaves falling through the sky, fluffy snowflakes suspended in midair, and greenery that’s lush and vibrant. When combined, both the stunning creatures and magical surroundings they interact with produce portraits that are soulfully piercing, taking the viewer on an emotional journey through visuals.
