Dogs in Cars

When British photographer Martin Usborne was a child, he was left alone in a car. Although it wasn’t for very long, the experience clearly stayed in his memory. In his photo series, Dogs in Cars, Usborne explores those childhood feelings of fear and loneliness.

Usborne didn’t happen to find and photograph dogs stuck in cars. These aren’t incidental images, the scene was set up and the dogs were placed in the cars. Like children, it’s easy to see the look of vulnerability on the faces of the dogs. See a few of the photos from Usborne’s Dogs in Cars after the jump.


Dogs in Cars will soon be a coffee table book. A successful Kickstarter campaign has raised the funds that Usborne needs to co-publish it.

See more images of dogs looking out of car windows on Usborne’s website.

    I have a German Shephard/Husky/wolf mix. I leave him in the car only to pump gas, really, and he cries like a little baby. They look so sad, like they’re not sure if their owners are coming back. :(
