Kendra Luck has created a style and body of work from a past career as an award-winning photojournalist and day-to-day life with her canine muse, Gladys (1992-2008). For Luck, watching a dog is akin to watching children play, waves breaking at the beach, or a bonfire blaze - it's hypnotic. Luck documents the dog's rising role in the family household. She lives in Albany, California, and travels throughout the United States for private photo commissions as well as editorial and commercial projects.
