I think there’s hardly anyone among our readers, who doesn’t like animals, it just clicks with our human nature to want to cuddle them and play with them, we can’t help it.
Which is why I thought I’d introduce to you Tobias Lang’s photo collection of pets and their owners looking very much alike.
I’ve never really been a fan of dressing animals up like humans, putting tiny versions pullovers and ribbons on them. I’ve always thought this kind of forcing human traits on animals was overdone, unnatural, and frankly, ridiculous. Which is exactly why I think Lang’s photos really hit the spot; they are very natural, casual, nothing is forced about them, and yet they emphasize how familiar pets and their owners are in a very profound way.
I think Lang was able to capture something beyond the similar appearances of pets and their owners so be sure to at least check out his compendium. I think the pictures reflect a striking similarity in mood, impression, and character between owners and their pets which creates a strong impression of looking at two soul-mates.
I will let you decide for yourself.
You can see more of Tobias’ work on Facebook. And even contact him and ask him to take a similar photo of you and your pets; vibrant with the unique bond you share and alive with companionship.
