      From Brian Cassey:

      "The tension between the main subject and the photographer is obvious and graphically captured. The message to the viewer is unequivocally clear. An edgy, nicely composed and well captured image that demands our attention."

    Artist Statement

    "This image was made on a hill outside a small village in Greenland where the sled dogs live during the summer. The dog in front is a female and the two smaller dogs are her pups. These are working dogs who are often distrustful of strangers, so it is not unexpected that she is making sure I don't disturb her offspring."
