The Softer Side of Pit Bulls by Sophie Gamand

Posted On Saturday, August 16, 2014

"Flower Power, Pit Bulls of the Revolution" is a series of photos by France-born, Brooklyn-based photographer Sophie Gamand dedicated to the dogs grouped under the name of pit bulls showcasing their softer side.

"I realized pit bulls were always portrayed in very urban, gritty photographs. The imagery associated with these dogs is often harsh, very contrasted, conveying the idea of them being tough." writes Gamad. "In my opinion, this feeds the myth that these dogs are dormant psychopaths. So I decided to take the other route and portray them like hippies, soft fairy-tale-inspired characters, feminine and dreamy. The idea of Flower Power blossomed."



All of these very adorable dogs are currently waiting for their new owners in theree rescue groups in New York City, Sean Casey rescue, Second Chance rescue and Animal Haven. Also, these photos are now available for purchase in print and all the proceeds of which will go to the rescue groups.

  5. I hate how pit bulls are often presented as aggressive, when they're just like every other dog, full of love and kindness.

  27. these pictures are a bit disturbing because i didn't believe that pit bulls could look this adorable, yet they do. i love the light in these pictures and the idea with the flower crowns. guess thats really art. i like this selection.
