Irina Werning‘s Chini Project with her friend’s Chinese crested dog just made my day. You probably know the artist from her Back to the Future series that’s been making the rounds of the blogosphere lately. Chini can show off her human side in all kinds of fabulous costumes and settings. She leads a rich life as a doctor, pilot, an astronaut, a chef, and other occupations, traveling all over the UK. The Chini Project is a great source of inspiration for dog lovers looking for fantastic dog costumes.
“Chini is my friend’s Chinese Crested dog. She came into my life in London, 2008 when my friends asked me to look after their house and three dogs for a month while on holidays. I had never lived with dogs, I hardly even noticed their presence until one day I took Chini into a friend’s studio. I took some pictures of her and the following day, CHINI PROJECT began. For a year, I photographed her inside the little sets I would build for her where she was free to act our little human ways. Her photographic journey takes us into the very heart of the human comedy.” />
