Lyric

Jess Bell is an owner and dog trainer, from Toronto. Her passion in life is animal photography. She states about her process, “I coated the dogs with colourful powder and then asked them for explosive movement to cause it to pour behind them. The appearance of the powder in each image is unique, reflecting each animal’s individual movement and structure.” The result was the the dynamic series, “Lyric.”
