NYCB, Franz Mayer of Munich
I wanted to create portraits of everyday, individual characters, people that might be waiting next to you on the subway platform. So I dressed the dogs in more or less normal clothes, nothing too fashionable. I was very excited to see how the photographs, especially the blurred dogs in the background of some of the pictures, would be translated into mosaic by Mayer of Munich.
