As featured in the Guardian.

When Shirley Baker began taking photographs at dog shows in the 1960s the hairdos of the owners were more impressive than those of their groomed canines. Not only a fascinating portrait of the phenomenon, Dog Show also captures the tender, amusing and at times obsessive relationship between humans and their dogs.

Shirley Baker (1932–2014) was a British social documentary photographer known for her street photographs of working-class areas of Manchester taken in the 1960s and ’70s. Her acute observation and artistic eye can be seen throughout her work, which has been exhibited in the UK and around the world.

With an introduction by Lucinda Gosling. This book is published in collaboration with Mary Evans Picture Library.
