Photography by Sophie Gamand
“Wet Dog” is a series of portraits of dogs photographed during their least favorite activity: bath time. Exposed at a vulnerable and humiliating moment, the soggy doggies wiggle, shake, haul themselves out of the groomer’s soapy grasp. The series celebrates dogs for what they really are: more than just animals. After millennia of close collaboration with humans, dogs have acquired a unique status in our society. Have they also taken some of our expressions?
Sophie believes dogs mirror humans and our society. The unique bond we have develop with them says a lot about our own solitude and social challenges.
