Public Eye: Why Photographers Are Dogs' Best Friends
Charles Schulz, the cartoonist and philosopher who created "Peanuts" and a popular beagle named Snoopy, knew that "happiness is a warm puppy." Judging from a number of stories trending on the web, photographers also understand the power of the canine to capture the human imagination and heart. From images of toddlers napping with pooches to beauty makeovers for shelter dogs, the media is filled with floppy ears and wet noses. In today's edition of Public Eye, our series looking back at recent news and ideas, we explore the unfathomable connection between man and beast, when man is an artist and the beast is his muse.

Latin American Fotografia: Roberto Rosa
"To rebel and break out is all young people wanted at the beginning of the '70s," writes Brazilian photographer Roberto Rosa. Born in Sao Paulo, Rosa fell in love with photography in college, and moved around Brazil until he landed in Rio de Janeiro in 1977 and began his professional career. But the wanderlust never left his soul. It was while vacationing in Venice, Italy, that he made a lustrous black-and-white photo at the Piazza San Marco that became a winner of the Latin American Fotografia 2 competition.
