Beach Dogs of Byron Bay is an exploration of the perspective of the four-legged friend by award-winning photographer/printmaker/musician Rob Scott-Mitchell. Scott-Mitchell was the winner of the inaugural National Photographic Portrait Prize in 2007 at the National Portrait Gallery, Canberra.
“Stylistically the work has evolved into shooting largely from the dogs’ P.O.V.” explains Mitchell. “I love entering their play spaces, responding to their energy and occasional aggression. I find this very special in the landscape of the beach, where the openness of the sky and ever-present horizon line, contrasts beautifully with tight shots that focus intimately on the dogs’ interactions”.
