Maddie on Things: Talented shelter dog inspires photographer
When photographer Theron Humphrey realized that he wasn’t happy, he decided to do something about it. That something was a 365-day road trip to all 50 states where he’d meet a new person each day and photograph them. He called it “This Wild Idea.”
Before he set out, Humphrey adopted Maddie, a 45-pound coonhound from an Atlanta animal shelter, to be his road trip companion.
Just a few days into the trip though, he discovered that Maddie had a special talent: an amazing sense of balance.
Humphrey says most of his Maddie photo shoots lasted no longer than 15 seconds. He’d find the location and check the lighting, and then he’d pose Maddie and instruct her to stay. Many dog treats were involved.
At the conclusion of the yearlong road trip, Humphrey turned Maddie’s photographs into a book titled “Maddie On Things.”
