# 1 Book Review

…The artful photographs are complemented by the writer’s razor-sharp wit and sense of the absurd,
making the final composition a delightful read.
…The writing, by Fern Goodman, gives to the picture of each dog, not only its identity, but
a special luminescence. Some descriptions make us laugh, others make us think, and all are
perfectly phrased to encapsulate and illuminate the picture before us. Each photo/story is
compelling yet rapidly traced, like an old-fashioned zoetrope, where we are amazed and
transfixed by the moving images. Each story takes hold and reminds us, once again, that people
who love dogs and write about them surely deserve our highest regard. For they are the ones who
translate our feelings, which would otherwise go unexpressed and leave us hollow, unable to
explain this extraordinary, time-honored relationship, the one that exists between each of us who
ever had, and loved, a dog.
If you love dogs, photography or just the joy of the well-written word, Captured is a book
you must have, to keep, to savor and enjoy, to return to again and again.
