A Photographer's Dream: Police Dogs Take Centre Stage


A Photographer's Dream: Police Dogs Take Centre Stage

Unitec photography student, Anita Purdie, undertook a project photographing drug detection and police dogs to increase the awareness of what a day in the life of a police dog is like.

"I decided to photograph police dogs, as I'm interested in how we view the environment and relate to animals," says Anita.

Anita believes that police dogs are interesting, as they serve as workers, co-workers and loyal partners to their handlers. The way police dog handlers treat their dogs, and the way the dogs respond to the handlers on duty creates a unique relationship.

"Police dogs are important to society and we owe them for their diligent work and vital roles they play within our communities."

Anita's photography work includes snapshots of police dogs in action, whether on a drug detection drill or training on the police grounds.

Anita is still in the process of completing this assignment, and she graduates from Unitec at the end of the year.

Photography is just one of the many elements to be presented at the Gradfest this year, challenging the creativity and innovation of graduate students' work, and rewarding them with the recognition they deserve.

Gradfest 2012 brings together the very best work by our Creative Industries and Business graduates. Get a new perspective as we celebrate the creative minds of the future. Be inspired by fresh talent, see new ideas in action and watch where the industry is heading.

To see more of what Unitec's graduate students have to offer come along to Gradfest opening night on 29 November.
