It is quite eerie how much the husky in the Canine Chronicles photo series actually resembles Steve Jobs. So much so, in fact, that it wouldn't be surprising if he actually owned a husky or two. Don't owners often look like their dogs, and vice versa? That said, the Canine Chronicles photo series portrays pups as having human qualities, which they actually do to an extent in real life.

Shot by New York-based photographer Winnie Au, the Canine Chronicles photo series is part of her latest book project. In the final product, the images in the Canine Chronicles series will be accompanied by fictional tales of each dog's individual historical contribution. The characters the Canine Chronicles series portrays include a scientist from the 1920s and an aviator from the 1930s.
