The Softer Side of Pitbulls Revealed in Flowery Portraits

Publish date:

In an attempt to change the way we look at Pit bulls, this series titled Flower Power aims to reveal their soft side and tackle prejudices surrounding them.

The dogs are photographed by NYC based photographer Sophie Gamand who is most well known for her 'wet dog' series of photos. The dogs are given adorable floral crowns to wear and them Sophie captures them looking cute to help raise awareness for the dogs. They are the most euthanised dogs in America because of the controversy surrounding them as they are known for being vicious, however a lot is to do with the way the dogs are raised.

Despite this these photographs show them in an entirely new light.
