Photographer Lara Jo Regan

Lara Jo Regan hung out of the windows of moving cars to take these photos, but don’t worry—no photographers (or dogs) were harmed in the process. Regan has received many honors, including having one of her images named the 2002 World Press Photo of the Year.

These images are all from the book Dogs in Cars, which contains 100 joy-filled photographs—and it’s worth noting that half of the dog models are rescues.
