Pit Bulls and Florals

Deborah Sussman's vibrant career, outlaw Instagrammers, the truth about yawning and more in our look at the web this week

No dog has as poor of a stereotypical reputation than that of the pit bull. After volunteering with rescue groups and developing a deeper understanding of the breed, photographer Sophie Gamand created a series of images that casts the loyal dogs in a new light. “Flower Power, Pit Bulls of the Revolution” dreamily portrays the dogs adorned with wreathes of flowers. The three subjects were taken from different NYC shelters and photographed in image-defying scenes of beauty and peace. Gamand is selling the prints, with 100% of the proceeds benefitting pit bull rescue groups.
