Richard Phibbs is an angel of an animal lover

Photographer and gentleman. Shoots celebrities and fashion, but really does a good dog―and really IS a good human. For the past several years, Richard has devoted a big chunk of his work life to finding all of these sweet souls a home. Working with the Humane Society of New York, he goes into a tiny examination room to take arresting and compassionate portraits of these scared little creatures who need to be seen to be loved.  And he has been relentless: Of the 180+ dogs Richard has photographed, the majority have found a second chance at life in a new home thanks to his brilliant photographs.

Gizmo is seen in the last picture and when Kyoko took his picture he knew exactly where to be. As she says about animals, "I think I have a healthy relationship with animals in general. When I grew up in Japan, we had tadpoles, crayfish, koi fish, a pet hamster with one arm, pet squirrels (different than American squirrels), turtles, cats and a dog. My view of animals changed slightly though when I saw wild lions in South Africa up close. I knew instinctively this big orange cat can take me down with one swipe. It gave me much more respect for the wilderness."

Jacques Sonck

Department of the Province of Antwerp), he devoted himself since the mid-1970s on personal projects. He makes penetrating street and studio portraits of prominent figures from all walks of life. In his pictures he goes in search of archetypes. Classical portraits in the style of Diane Arbus. Without any judgment, Jacques Sonck confronts the viewer with charming and disturbing individuals: loners, eccentrics, drop-outs and deformed. Sonck's refined black-white images contain surprising, often anachronistic, aesthetics with remarkable documentary character. Diversity in all its shapes within the human species is depicted in an understated way, without melancholy, compassion or the intent to ridicule.

Mickalene Thomas has a dog named Priscilla. Lucky her.

"Old Priscilla is looking good these days. She is happy Spring is here and struts down the street wagging her tail with her tongue hanging from her mouth. She is the sweetest mini Dachs in Forte Greene, Brooklyn.  Her best quality is her little legs. They are super cute and smaller than her nose, really."
