Photographer and animal advocate Sophie Gamand portrays a more uplifting outlook on the whole ordeal, and has humorously captured it in her series turned book “Wet Dog”. French born and New York based, Sophie started this concept sporadically during a trip to the groomers. She then quickly realized the different states of minds, as well as the humble and humorous reactions of dogs during shower time.

Sophie has done extensive pro bono work and has photographed hundreds of shelter dogs to promote their adoptions. One of her recent collections defies the stereotypes of pit bulls by photographing this often euthanized breed through a series of staged portraits. We couldn’t agree with her more about shaking the general misconceptions of pit bulls. Check out her work here.
