As close as we are to our beloved pets, we often wonder how they spend their days when we aren't watching. What do they explore? How does the world look from the point of view of our dogs and cats—or our chickens and goats? PetCam, by photographer Chris Keeney, author of Pinhole Cameras, presents a collection of striking and amusing images created by an international roster of four-legged photographers. With small, lightweight cameras attached to their collars and cowbells, they document what they see as they go about their daily routines—lounging under parked cars, scaling rooftops, jumping fences, relaxing in a neighbor's tall grass. You'll see the world through the eyes of more than twenty intrepid pets, including Coulee, a Border Collie–Golden Retriever mix from Alberta, Canada; Fritz, a tabby cat living in the Ore Mountains of Germany; Walter and Hamlet, brother and sister miniature pot belly pigs from San Diego; and Sofie, a Galloway cow, who spends her days roaming the hills of the Swiss Alps. This unique and whimsical collection offers a peek into the wanderings of our animal friends, and reveals how they experience the world we all share.
