A selection of work from internationally acclaimed photographer Bettina von Zwehl will be on display at the Kennel Club until Friday 28th April 2017.
The Royal College of Art graduate has built her reputation on subtle and distinctive photographic portraits. Her most recent project has focused on the tradition of the painted portrait miniature, with her own interpretations focusing on both humans and dogs.
