‘Dogs in Cars’ is an unusual, yet delightful pet project by Los Angeles-based animal photographer Lara Jo Regan, in which she captures ecstatic dogs hanging their heads out of moving car windows.
With their tongues hanging out of their mouths, these humorous portraits were aimed at exploring the joyful experience felt by the animals as the breeze hits their faces.
“I usually try to come up with ideas that are somewhat odd and complex to insure no one else is doing the same thing,” she said. “But as an owner of three dogs living in the Los Angeles car culture, the idea was just staring me in the face.”
“Most dogs become downright delirious over a car ride, and I wanted to capture this amazing primal energy in photographs beyond what I’d seen before.”
