About the Print Cover

This month’s cover dog is the French bulldog Axel and his friend Optimus, who were photographed by the Palo Alto-based animal photographer Luiza Naslausky. She is a lifelong dog lover and Brazilian native who began archiving dog breeds from the streets of Rio de Janeiro when she was 13. She often volunteers her photography services at animal rescues, striving to capture each individual’s essence to help them connect with people. Visit to learn more about her and to see more images.
