Adorable Captures of Displeased Dogs During Bath Time

Photographer Sophie Gamand, originally from France, is currently based in New York City. One aspect of culture that fascinates her is the relationship between dogs and their owners. From Gamand's website,

"A big city like New York, a place not primarily designed for animals, seems to emphasize the idea that the nature of our favorite companions has been engineered to fit the human lifestyle. Are dogs still animals? Or are they the new children of a human community that is increasingly disconnected?

With her work, Sophie Gamand explores the human through dog photography."

Gamand's projects include:

  • The Wet Dog, a photo series of dogs during bath time, a portion of which is shown here. Photos from this series will be the basis of an upcoming book to be published by by Grand Central Publishing in autumn of 2015 
  • Dog Vogue, a photo essay of dogs dressed to the nines by noted pet couturier Anthony Rubio, in which Gamand examines the world of New York animal fashion design and the competitive animal owners who buy the merchandise
  • Metamorphosis, an ongoing project about the various stages of the dog grooming process, a "symbolic exploration of the domestication of dogs"

Metamorphosis was a finalist in the GIF category of the New York Photo Festival in 2014. The Wet Dog series won first place in the Portraiture category of the 2014 Sony World Photography Awards.

Wet Dog prints are available here. Learn about all of Gamand's projects at her website. Follow her on social media via TwitterFacebook and Instagram
