‘Old Faithful’, A Beautiful Portrait Series Capturing the Sweet Elegance of Elderly Dogs

Bodley – 12 years old

Old Faithful, a beautiful portrait series by Toronto-based photographer Pete Thorne, captures the sweet elegance of elderly dogs. Posting a new portrait every day on the project’s Facebook page, Pete hopes to put together a book of these amazing dogs and speaks about them with the utmost respect and tenderness. In the case of Mance, the English Bulldog with bone cancer, Pete saw beauty in the deformity caused by disease.

The Old Faithful project did its first house call yesterday to meet and photograph Mance here. Mance is a 13yr Old English Bulldog, a breed close to my heart. He has bone cancer that adds a lot of character to his face. He’s in a pretty fragile state so I made my first trip out of the home studio to photograph him, in all his asymmetrical charm.
