It’s Important to Paws is a collection of portraits and commentaries presented by Alaskan photographer David Jensen. The images and observations in this book feature selections from his nearly 25 years of photography work with dogs, cats, birds, horses and other animal companions. It reflects emotion, fun, and the possibilities that can emerge when people embrace life with animals as members of their family.
A full-color, hardbound coffee table book, It’s Important to Paws will include more than 200 pages of animal photographs by Alaska’s only pet-ographer. David Jensen’s images are displayed in thousands of homes around the world. They are also exhibited publicly at several venues throughout Anchorage, Alaska. His work has been published on the front covers and centerfolds of Cat Fancy, Dog Fancy, calendars, journals and other national and international publications. The Anchorage Daily News has published more than 1,500 of his Pet Patrol adoption portraits since 1989.
It’s Important to Paws also incorporates David’s formal journalistic background. The book includes original writings and stories that complement the whiskers and paws of more than 200 animal subjects he has selected to appear in his premier book. These writings are passionate, funny and eclectic.
