The life of a model can be tough, just ask Kate, Cindy or Marky. But the ever-professional mutts in photographer Sophie Gamand’s book, Wet Dog, deliver perfect blue-steel stares despite being held in the bath and drenched with water.
The series of soggy canines was first released in 2014 and quickly gained a cult following, culminating in the launch of a book with 120 portraits. While the pics of the un-amused pets are undoubtedly cute, it’s Gamand’s mission to show them as more. Many of the animals in her portraits are rescues, and Gamand expertly captures the feeling behind the fanfare—portraying her subjects as almost relatable, with distinctive human traits.
