British photographer Martin Usborne made a wonderful series called “MUTE: the silence of dogs in cars“. It features dogs temporarily left in cars. We all know the situation, the dog is looking sad, or barking but without sound, muted by the glass of the car. The dog is trapped and for a moment we try to understand what the dog thinks.
For context, Usborne writes:
I was once left in a car at a young age.
I don’t know when or where or for how long, possibly at the age of four, perhaps outside Tesco’s, probably for fifteen minutes only. The details don’t matter. The point is that I wondered if anyone would come back. It seems trivial now but in a child’s mind it is possible to be alone forever.
