if you’ve ever wondered what the world looks like through the eyes of your four-legged friend, american photographer chris keeney has amassed a series of snapshots taken from curious creatures’ own point of view. the ‘petcam’ book is collection of images from all over the world, captured by a chihuahua, a manx cat, a red angus cow and a tiny abyssinian guinea pig — just to name a few. using a small, lightweight digital camera attached to the animal’s collar — and set to take photos at predetermined intervals — the pet becomes the photographer, and their wild adventures are documented from an unparalleled perspective.

nearly one hundred petcam photos taken by a diverse, international company of creative critters. from the slopes of the swiss alps to the streets of tokyo, viewers can experience the twenty furry photographers’ view of their surroundings, human companions and animal friends, with quirky ‘artist statements’ accompanying the shot. ‘setting off with a petcam rigged to your pup’s collar means that an adventure is in store for both of you.’ keeney describes ‘whenever I attach a camera to my dog fred, he gets excited. he knows that we’re about to go somewhere fun, often a place new to both of us. and since the camera is small, it doesn’t get in the way of his good time or weigh him down as he explores.’
