Book overview

Best Mates is a diverse photographic exploration of the relationship between dogs and their two-legged friends around Australia. From Blue Heelers in the far Northern Territory to Pomeranians in Sydney’s inner suburbs, this collection captures the decisive moments – sincere and sometimes hilarious – between these characters of town and country.

Celebrating the talent and the passions of some of Australia’s finest photographers, The Australian Photographic Gallery explores the Australian landscape in all of its dimensions: natural, cultural and social.
