Photography is a visual medium, I have been documenting those who do not have the privilege of sight, but instead have a four-legged companion to guide them. My work explores the animal-human relationship of guide dogs and their owners, a partnership where a human relies on another species. In order to document this crucial relationship I have captured everyday aspects of two people living without sight, representing the importance of their dogs. This work shows the 'real world' of the blind. The images are moments in time capturing the instant. Documentary is a sense of reality and I believe my images represent this reality, and an insight into a fundamental relationship, which is strong and intimate between human and dog.
