In The Nature of Dogs, Mary Ludington seeks to capture the true nature of dogs, their beauty, character and spirit. Any dog owner will tell you that there is a profound and mysterious connection between humans and their dogs. Our regard for these creatures undeniably runs deeper than mere gratitude for companionship; we respect the unknowable aspect of their natures and understand that at least a part of their true spirit resides outside the human sphere. Though they hunger for our affection, our pets are often most themselves in their natural habitat. Mary Ludington’s spectacular and sensitive photographs reflect this understanding, capturing the particular personalities of the different breeds. This striking collection of photographs offers us a glimpse of the dogs in their element-whether caught in midstride or in an hour of well-earned repose.  Admission is free, but donations are gratefully accepted.
