Sandra always values accurate preparation and thought-out implementation, and her series of twelve photographs “In dog we trust” deals with the relationship between humans and dogs today. Inspired by the Icons of the Orthodox Church, Sandra Birke has substituted them for dogs, surrounded by items from their everyday lives, because a dog means everything to its owner.
