Maddie the Coonhound Balancing on Things Across America

Atlanta-based photographer Theron Humphrey is currently on a year-long trip through each of America’s 50 states, and is using a unique photo project idea to document it: he has his coonhound named Maddie — his travelling companion — balance on various things in the different places they visit. The photoblog has the tagline “a super serious project about dogs and physics”, and features Maddie standing on everything from mailboxes to shopping carts.

Humphrey is also doing a more serious photo project as well: This Wild Idea features portraits and stories of the various people encountered throughout the trip.

    Awesome dog, awesome project. His serious project is bad-a too. I’ll have to listen to a few later on when I have some sound with my internet browsing abilities. Nice post Michael.

    She should balance on someone planking

    “Land of many uses”. Really?

    I really wish Theron’s main project got all the buzz that the fun photos of his dog do; check it out

    Only one project more stupid than this and was that Japanese woman taking a bath in strange places (in this web some time ago). It seems the Circus of Photographers has come to town…

    Neat dog and in spite of the like or dislike below am glad to see a Redtick get some exposure.
