More Pit Bull Flower Power by Sophie Gamand.
Through her lens, the stereotypes about pitbulls fall
away and we see the dogs for what they are -
Wanting nothing more or less than your Love.
Gamand started the project about a year ago
while she was volunteering as a photographer at
an animal shelter and often dealt with pit bulls.
Sophie Gamand says: " This project was a way to get to
know them better. The first time I tried a flowercrown
around a pitbull's head, at a local shelter, I thought for
sure I would get bit or something terrible would happen.
But she just sat there, looking at me with deep
soulful eyes. There was so much depth and wisdom
in her face "
" I knew the series had found a meaning that went
beyond what I had anticipated "
Her goal is to challenge the way we look at pit bulls.
As she says: " I am curious to see the power of art,
how it can influence the way we deal with the world
around us. If those pictures were the only image we
had of pit bulls, would we still be afraid" ?
