Vincent J. Musi


As a National Geographic photographer, Vince Musi travelled the world to photograph lions, tigers and bears. All that changed when his son turned sixteen – he decided to try something different; to spend some quality time at home and open a hometown studio to photograph dogs.

From a farting bulldog to an opera-loving labrador, Musi chronicles the personalities of everyday dogs in words and photographs. His stunning portraits are matched with witty ‘dogographies’ and a comic blend of Vince’s own personal stories – from girl-next-door crushes to professional failures – from his wildly popular Instagram feed.

Now, for the first time, The Year of the Dogs brings together this eccentric cast of characters in one volume, doggone guaranteed to put a smile on the face of anyone who loves animals.
