Between Dog and Wolf
7.7 x 10 inches
Nick Haymes’ photography often explores the artist’s role in and relationship with his family. This first small monograph finds him traveling with an extended family of young skateboarders. Between Dog and Wolf depicts–beyond their adventures and misadventures on wheels–their joy in living, in making out and hanging out. Haymes, who was born in England in 1969, observes his young subjects with a mix of friendly and almost fatherly care, documenting a delicate stage of life with equal attention to its dark moments and its blissful ones, in a raw and distinctive style that looks exceptionally closely. The artist has lived in New York since 2000, where he has worked with many widely respected magazines including i-D, Dazed & Confused, The Face, Vogue, TeenVogue, Another Magazine, Arena, Capricious and The Journal.
