Chini project is a collection of Chinese crested dog photographs by Irina Werning. Chini is Irina’s friend’s dog. She came into his life in London, 2008 when his friends asked him to look after their house and three dogs for a month while on holidays. He had never lived with dogs, he hardly even noticed their presence until one day he took Chini into a friend’s studio. He took some pictures of her and the following day, CHINI PROJECT began.

For a year, he photographed her inside the little sets he would build for her where she was free to act our little human ways. You might have seen many animals pictures but her photographic journey takes us into the very heart of the human comedy.
