In almost every picture #9 is the latest addition to the long running series of found photography. This time around, we are presented with the peculiar story of one family's attempts to photograph its black dog. "Attempts" being the operative word. Unfortunately, their camera's limitations mean that the canine appears, time after time, as only a vague black blob. The all black dog shape is seen posed in all kinds of domestic situations, usually with his owners as part of a tableaux of homely contentment. But while these contexts make it clear that the silhouetted pooch is an integral part of this family's life, it's equally clear that there's no situation capable of providing the requisite amount of light.
