A photographer came up with the idea of taking pictures of dogs as they grabbed the treat being thrown at them. The result is surprising.
Since 2012, German photographer and journalist Christian Vieler has specialized in dog photography. The artist based in Waltrop , a town almost 10 km north of Dortmund , has several projects to his credit that feature canines as protagonists, including the one in question here.
This is a series of snapshots in which the dogs are photographed just as they are about to grab a kibble or a treat in mid-flight.
This results in amazing and funny portraits, where these animals display a distorted face and a surprising expression, mixing determination and excitement.
Here are 18 of these photos taken by Christian Vieler …
