For this year’s Dog Eat Dog calendar, The Gourmand gathers a pack of pups who are each “culinarily named”. There’s Ham the Miniature Pomeranian, Seabass the Bedlington Whippet, Marzipan the Bernese Mountain Dog and Stilton the Pug, among eight other equally incredible names; with each dog sitting for their portrait – photographed by Jess Bonham – in a set inspired by their namesake food. Whether it’s through colour, texture or form, each set – designed by George Lewin Studio – offers a unique play on the potentials of scale and abstraction, with the dogs (seeming to) happily play along in their strange, surreal surroundings.
All proceeds for Dog Eat Dog will go to animal welfare charity, Mayhew, and the calendar is available via The Gourmand’s website.
