    Artist Statement

    "Dogs of the Puszta #3 is part of a personal project documenting vanishing rural life. This is a series that I've been working on for the past 7 years. This digital infrared image was photographed during my second journey to the Great Plains of Hungary near the Hortobágy. Since I was born in the prairies of Saskatchewan in Canada, I have a natural connection to the people and animals of the plains. This image shows one of the herding dogs along with their uniquely shaped dog houses that dot the sparse landscape of the Puszta. The dogs spend a large part of the day running free herding sheep and the large gray oxen."
