Charlotte Dumas has a knack for getting close to animals—she’s photographed tigers, wolves, service dogs, and strays. Her close-range portraits tend to show otherwise intimidating animals in tender moments. Her latest project, commissioned by the Corcoran Gallery, looks inside the stables at the Arlington National Cemetery, in Virginia. Dumas photographed the service horses, who pull caissons in military funerals after a day’s work, resting in their stalls. “The bond between mankind and animals, and the extensive history that it accompanies, is my great interest.” says Dumas.
