Sophie Gamand’s Pictures Of Pit Bulls Will Warm Your Heart
Photographer Sophie Gamand believes that everyone deserves a home. In an effort to help pit bulls find loving families, the author of the best-selling book Wet Dog created the series Flower Power: Pit Bulls of the Revolution, where she photographs pit bulls in flower crowns to help soften their image. All the dogs from the series are shelter dogs who were waiting for adoption at the time of the photograph. Sophie has photographed about 250 dogs since the project started in the summer of 2014, and we are happy to report that all of the below pit bulls have since been adopted into happy homes.
