I always read the lost pet posters that I see on utility poles and stop signs. I imagine how upset I would be if I lost my dog. I think of the sad task of making a poster and taping it to stop signs and poles and grocery store bulletin boards. When I have a camera with me, I take a photograph of the poster. I take inspiration from the work of Walker Evans, and how he photographed signs all over America. I call this series “Lost Dog” even though I include all other lost and found animal posters.
