Look at Julia Christe’s Photos of Dogs Flying

The German artist enters the rarefied air of flying-dog photography, and we love the expressions of her subjects.

At Dogster, it’s no secret: We love it when professional photographers take pictures of dogs in things, on things, and in various states of wetness. We love Seth Casteel’s pictures of dogs underwater — and also his puppies underwater. We love Theron Humphrey’s pictures of Maddie on things and Sophie Gamand’s pictures of wet dogs. We love Sharon Montrose’s pictures of parts of dogs. We also love Serenah’s pictures of dogs looking funny and sorta goofy as well as Carli Davidson’s pictures of dogs looking funny and sorta goofy.

Now, we love Julia Christe’s pictures of dogs flying. No, really, they are soaring, airborne. OK, they’re really falling. But still, they’re up there, in the air, if only for a moment, hair flying, brain scrambling, wondering what the heck the lady with the camera is up to. Look:

As for the mechanics of these airborne dogs, rest assured they got into the air under the best possible scenarios. Christe had their owners huck them off — wait, no. She had them drop them them onto mattresses, according to the Guardian.

“The expression on their faces mostly reflects the surprise of the first flight, and in most cases the first jump provided the best pictures,” said Christe, according to the Herald Sun.

“Not every dog is born to fly, but some had great talent and became proper shooting stars.”
