The 'Nice to Meet You' Series by Martin Usborne is made up of a distorted canine portrait on one side and a written phrase opposite it. One of Usborn's favorite subjects is to explore the relationships between humans and other animals, as previously seen in his 'The Silence of Dogs in Cars' series.
For the series, Usborne recalls a time he suffered from depression and communicates how this inner struggle can be masked by phrases like "I'm fine." To show the masking of these layers, each dog is photographed through a veil -- like a pane of glass, fog, or smoke. Usborne used feral, untrained dogs and in one case, a wolf to communicate the intensity emotion that lies beneath the surface of someone suffering from depression.
