you’ll be hard pressed to find pet passengers that look happier than these playful pooches. photographer lara jo regan presents the series ‘dogs in cars‘, celebrating the infectious happiness of animals on a car ride.


although varied in gender, size and breed, a common thread throughout the images sees the unbounded delirium and windswept coats of retrievers, pugs and pit bull terriers, wide-eyed and mouths gaping open in excitement. these cruising canines are captured with special lighting techniques, involving hand-crafted contraptions mounted on car roofs, and high-speed lights that works in conjunction with nikon cameras — all working towards the final composition.
