Expressive Portrait Series Of Dogs Wearing The ‘Cone Of Shame’
By Valerie Chang, 07 May 2015
Photographer Ty Foster’s photo series, titled ‘Timeout’, effectively communicates the expressions of embarrassment and sadness when dogs put on the ‘cone of shame’—either to help the pooch recover from illnesses or injuries, or as a form of discipline.
He wrote, “From a dog’s perspective, the cone falls into the ‘Items that should be banished to the depths of hell’ category, along with the vacuum, going to the vet and the mailman.
“[…] From being a hindrance at food time, giving the cat a ‘teasing handicap’, and preventing the simplest pleasure of scratching behind your ear, ‘Timeout’ showcases how dogs truly feel about the plastic prison that is the cone.”
Check out the entire series here and more of Foster’s works on his website and Instagram.
Foster was previously featured for his expressive portraits of dogs caught in mid-lick.
