Teddybears

Synopsis

Letasu

A few years ago I wandered past ‘Green Dog’ a spa, ‘holistic care’ and culinary shop for dogs in Tokyo. Running along side the shop is the glass walled spa where you can gaze in at dogs being shampooed, receiving mud masks, rock salt massages, or getting their hair styled. The faces of the dogs as they were blown dried and the resulting teddy bear cuts had remained with me, and when I had a chance to go back to Japan I headed straight back to see fluffy mutts. This time I took my little studio, on the day when there weren’t any dogs coming in for their acupuncture appointments I set up in their consultation room and photographed the days clients.
