Every once in a while we come across a photographer whose work is so compelling it stops us dead in our tracks. Such is the work of photographer Eiko Jones, whose dramatic photos of dogs underwater are so magical and compelling it’s like a glimpse into another world. A marriage of the familiar—dogs—with watery depths and epic skies, they cast the common in a most uncommon light. (In Alice Walker’s novel The Temple of My Familiar, the word “pet” is dismissed for the much more apt title “my familiar,” a lovely turn of phrase if ever there was one.)
