Many feel that their pets are extended members of their family, and these portraits by Tobias Lang prove that animal pictures can evoke the feeling of true family portraits.
The premise of Lang's portraits are to capture the pet owner alongside their animal companion. However, these photos are truly different because the two subjects are not in the same frame. Having the subjects separated creates an interesting dynamic between the two.
Both parties have been able to portray their true personalities through the pictures, while showing any similarities the two may have. Another interesting factor in these photos is the chemistry that is felt between the animal and owner; even though they are not together, the love is still apparent. Tobias Lang has been able to evoke powerful emotions in his animal pictures, proving that you do not need to be the same species in order to be family.
