Photographer Theron Humphrey adopted Maddie, a 1yo Coonhound before setting off a year-long trip to document everyday life and people in all 50 states. During the trip, Theron noticed that Maddie had the peculiar ability of unwavering patience and balance and he began to document Maddie as well. He collected his Maddie photographs on a blog he setup entitled, Maddie on Things. Little did he know that this dog would change his life and push him forward in a new direction and purpose. After completing his year long trip across the United States, he’s heading out again, this time with a new project, focusing on rescue dogs for Why We Rescue, and a book tour of the now famous Maddie on Things photographs.

Being the OCD person that I am (things are at right angles on my desk) Ursus Wehrli‘s new book, The Art of The Clean Up, is right up my alley. The book contains Ursus’ photography of everyday life reorganized as if ready to be cataloged.
Spruce branches pulled apart with the sticks and needles individually lined up by size, a parking lot full of cars organized by hue, and so on. This is one book that will definitely end up on my shelves.
You can purchase the book, Kein & Aber’s website for 16.90€ (about $25.00) but its so far only available in German.
