Peking Dog

During the Unseen Photo Fair in Amsterdam, Morad Bouchakour presented his new book Peking Dog. Bouchakour explores Beijing’s old working class neighbourhoods, also known as Hutongs. These districts gradually make way for skyscrapers. Peking Dog captures the symbolic status that cars have become, even in the Hutongs, and the mission to protect this status, against the rise of a new status symbol, owning a dog. As every evening, car owners hopelessly attempt to protect their cars from inevitably being passing dogs’ next toilet. The love and hate interaction is displayed among the book where picture of cars are set against pictures of dogs opening up to interrogations. The intrigue remains in the design. The title is partly covered and the full text is hidden in the middle where the book opens.
