If there’s one things dogs don’t like, it’s the Elizabethan collar, popularly known as the “cone of shame” or the “pet lamp-shade.”
For his new project titled Timeout, photographer Ty Foster shot a series of portraits of dogs that captures the sadness and embarrassment caused by wearing the cone of shame.
“For those of us who have pets I think we’ve all experienced the pain and hardships that accompany the plastic prison that is the cone and I really wanted to showcase those emotions and hardships in this series,”
“Timeout is a series about those hardships that are associated with the cone of shame – emotionally and physically,” he writes. “From being a hindrance at food time, giving the cat a ‘torment handicap’, and preventing the simplest pleasure of scratching behind your ear, Timeout showcases how dogs truly feel about the plastic prison that is the cone.”
