Let Sleeping Dogs Lie

Marcia Leeder

In this evocative series, animal photographer Leeder demonstrates a literal interpretation of the classic idiom, “let sleeping dogs lie,” featuring dogs at rest. Leeder believes the experience of watching animals in moments of deep relaxation can inspire the same feelings of peacefulness in people. While viewing the exhibit, the artist invites visitors to inhale deeply through the nose, then release that breath in a great big dog sigh.
