Reviews for Best in Show

Dolly Faibyshev approaches the subjects of the book--the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show and the American Kennel Club National Championship--with the same kinetic, fly-on-the-wall energy as street photographer Bill Cunningham was known for at New York Fashion Week. With a strong flash, vibrant color, and high shine, Faibyshev's photographs take on the feeling of a roving paparazzo, capturing less-often-seen candid moments of dogs and their owners in action across the event, from backstage primping, teeth cleaning, and ear scratching to the high-drama action of showtime and judging in the main ring. --Fast Company
