Photographer Amanda Jones has been photographing dogs for twenty years. The Massachusetts resident was inspired to put together this collection of dog portraits, Dog Years: Faithful Friends Then & Now, by her dachshund, Lily, who passed away during the making of the book. The book features before and after photos of numerous breeds along with comments from their owners.
“Some don’t seem to age at all, yet others show the signs quite openly in their eyes, their jowls, and their gray hair,” Jones told the Daily Mail. “It is this semblance of ourselves and our souls in their eyes that gives us such a deep connection with dogs. One thing that remains constant is the love people and dogs have for each other. That does not change, no matter how many dog years go by.”
