“Wet Dog is a series on dogs being washed during their grooming sessions. The way the water plays with their hair in a very painterly manner, and their facial expressions as the water is poured on them creates striking portraits that resemble famous humans or important characters. The dogs become timeless sculptures.” – Sophie Gamand
This is another dog photography series that just makes you go awww naturally. Well, I can relate a bit since I give my shih-tzu a bath thrice a week. I always see him looking hilarious and cute. This is indeed a fun idea from Gamand. We always see dogs in their dry-sometimes-fluffy look. Twisting it a bit and photographing these best friends of ours does not solely mean catching attention for her.
According to her, this series is also dedicated to people who groom their pets based on the standard of hygiene and beauty that has been there – passed on from one person to the other. The question is – does your dog really enjoy what you’re doing to him/her? Animals do get stressed too. It’s best to listen to their needs as well.
She adds that when she captures the beauty of dogs, she is reminded of their existence not as mere animals but as life companions. They are beautiful creatures that bring so much joy to our lives and the world as a whole. It is a beautiful way to send an important message across. Recently, I’ve found out about dog series that makes me want to love dogs more. It’s something photography has given to me – and I’m very grateful.
