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.
I met this remarkable photographer at the National Arts club earlier this summer. I was undone by her instagram feed and inquired about her work. Here is a new series Klee is doing with all her own images after years of borrowing from fashion magazines. Her 8lb pooch is her muse and here is one of her latest projects.
Before we get too carried away with dogs, I did want to say that the occasional cat, bird, elephant, rabbit, or African Pygmy Hedgehog might appear! But this cat, aka, Brigitte Lacombe's Studio Cat is one of my favorites.
Big story right? Well, I went to the gallery I met another gorgeous dog whose name is Ludvig von Truffle and he showed me around....
Not to mention that Laurie can join the girl crush club too. Love her.
Cornillius came to Maria and family when they discovered her daughter, Sofia, was allergic to other pets. He is a New Zealand rabbit bought in Canada and will live a long gorgeous life as Maria's muse. She started photographing him 4 years ago on her iPhone to get her acclimated to digital and thus, the Maria Robledo feed of Cornillius began.
We had a brilliant team come together for the simple reason of trying to help some rescue dogs! Add some fashion and you get some fetching shots! I have to thank The Dogist for taking the pics, Stacy Alldredge for arranging dogs, Lauren Paltin and Emily Holland for styling and Chappell Laird for assisting the whole shoot! Thanks to all foster families for coming!
Or at least he did make it while I was there at the studio that day. So, I was nervous before the visit, that I might be the only dog owner in the world to have dogs, well not really, that like to jump up on people. It was just not so. Wegman's dogs do the same thing and his dogs are bigger than my dogs. This is what he says about two of them, "Topper is the biggest trouble maker. He sometimes bites Flo's back leg when Flo is introducing herself to visitors. He barks a lot. But he's a great dog." I loved being able to go meet the dogs.
Wit and whimsy is how I think of Tim. Thank you for sharing this gorgeous picture of Stig, looking for a hunt in the hills. Tim and Jacob found Stig chained up outside their house in London 5 years ago and they are, as Tim would say, OBSSESSSSSSED. I get it. And Jacob, nothing finer than a man in a skirt.
And apparently Elsa also likes tennis balls from the look of this Malcolm piece from 2009.
After being given her first camera at age seven, Valerie's first subject was her dog Taffy. Twenty years later she was taking a picture for a friend and the result was magical; a gorgeous portrait of her friends dog, Cocoa.
Todd once had a dog called T Bone. He was a beautiful, spunky dog and my daughter Sophie loved him so. T-Bone got old and now Todd has a dog named T Rex, half Chihuahua, half Maltese beauty. What a special dog he is. In fact, he lives up to that name of his and is an absolute "king". I think he likes art a lot, especially the Jeff Koons at the Brant Foundation.
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.
"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."
