If you happen to be in Los Angeles anytime from now through October 27th (or want a great excuse to go), check out The Day of the Dog Exhibition at The Perfect Exposure Gallery. You might recognize one of my favorite photography subjects, my boxer Tyrone, on the walls of the gallery. While Tyrone isn’t a big fan of being photographed, with some patience and luck, I captured a rare moment of cooperation.
I’m pretty humbled to be in the company of some phenomenal photographers in this exhibit. Submissions were garnered from all over the world and only 74 photos were selected. I have followed the work of several of the photographers for years and am honored to be included in the exhibition. In addition to the great opportunity for folks to enjoy these wonderful photos of dogs, a portion of the proceeds from the sales of the pieces benefits the work of LA Animal Services. It’s a hard-working organization that has a vision to create a world where every animal is cared for throughout its entire life. It’s a great vision, isn’t it? Something we can all get behind. I think Tyrone would be happy to know he got to help them a little.
Let me know if you have a chance to see the exhibition in LA! I’ve included the official press release from The Perfect Exposure Gallery with all the details below.
About the Exhibit
On National Day of the Dog we celebrate Man’s Best Friend in all his glory. From the loving domestic sidekick to the wild dogs of Africa; the agile canine athletes traversing Alaska to the work dogs tirelessly herding livestock in Florida; the fearless animals rescuing victims of tragedy and still others donning the latest fashion trends. The Dog is often revered and sometimes overlooked, but always in need of more recognition because we humans can learn so much from these faithful, loving and humorous animals. Amateur and professional photographers from across the globe have presented images to benefit LA Animal Services.
