“The Dog People” – Dog Owners Trying To Mimic Their Dog’s Facial Expressions


We can all say that dogs are sensitive enough to know the mood of their owners, simply by observing their facial expressions. So, observing this connection between pets and humans, the German photographer Ines Opifanti wondered if the owners are also able to “read” the facial expressions of their very best friends.
