Sage Sohier grew up with four dogs, and currently lives with three. Animals have
always been important in her life; so, when she started photographing people in the
late 1970s, she often included their companion animals.
“There is more spontaneity, less self-consciousness, and more chaos when humans and other animals coexist. Love is unconditional, grief is uncomplicated though deeply felt, and life is richer, more vivid, more comical.”
Sohier says. She started to seek out people who lived with many animals, especially homes with multiple species. These photographs from the 1980s and 90s are the result.
