In good times and bad, our best friends are there for support, therapy, and unconditional love. Especially now—where would we be without our dogs? Although the so-called modernists of Palm Springs embrace the serenity of life in post-WWII America, the sometimes-harsh realities of contemporary life are impossible to ignore. These mid-twentieth-century reenactors are often transplants, enjoying the Palm Springs lifestyle with their dogs and friends as their chosen family. The beautiful climate, wide-open spaces, and clean decor make the perfect home for their desert pets, which are as lovingly groomed and cared for as their surroundings. In these photographs, Nancy Baron puts these four-legged Palm Springs residents into the spotlight, where they add the same warmth and life to the image as they do to their homes.
