Photographer Carli Davidson spends a lot of time cleaning her walls and furniture. That's because she's got a jowly French Mastiff named Norbert, who is always shaking his big head and flinging drool everywhere. "It was during one of those moments when I was cleaning that I was like, 'Oh man, I wonder what this actually looks like--what it looks like when he is shaking his head,'" Davidson says. Norbert, whom Davidson describes as sensitive, was notoriously camera shy at the time, so she brought a friend's French Mastiff into her Portland studio, got him wet, and started shooting. She liked what she saw in the test shots, lined up other dog models and ultimately put together a book called Shake, published by HarperCollins. The book features crystal clear photos of wet dogs captured in mid-shake, and the expressions on their contorted faces are hilarious: http://f-st.co/uYrQPsj
