Whether it’s at high society events in Berlin or in the Australian outback, our editorial photographer Frank Roth has always taken an interest in animals alongside people on his many travels. Over the years, a collection of sometimes bizarre everyday scenes from around the world has been created.

MSometimes a person becomes an animal. But on the contrary, one can always see how many human traits there are in all beings on our planet. In photography, many artists have worked to find comparisons between humans and their animals or to reveal distinctive characteristics of their relationship as pets. Even when studying photography, it is always a good idea to dedicate a photo report to the Small Breeders Association of the city in question.

As a longtime FAZ editorial photographer, Frank Roth has traveled to many countries. By the way, he always has people in the city photographed. In passing, animals repeatedly appear in his photographs. Sometimes as an accessory, sometimes as a literal column column and sometimes they seem like intuitive accessories that don’t get much attention. It is only through the focus chosen by Roth that the strangeness of such a scene is revealed. In Togliatti, Russia, a dog waits for a bus with a man and child. You can’t tell who the photo belongs to, but it also seems to have a destination on its journey. and in Frankfurt Gallus District A dog that looks a bit grumpy, maybe Because the mistress “again” spoke so hard. The fact that the horses are thirsty in Moscow is obvious, and the horses stand almost normally in a group of people in the tavern, but this is surprising.

At this point, we don’t want to go into detail about how a typical Moshammer Daisy day would be spent at a social event in Berlin. But you can certainly do it in the book specially written by Rudolf Moshammer Confessions of a dog lady Read on if you’re not sure after looking at the photo who’s in focus here.
