“Wet Dog” is a series of portraits of dogs photographed during their least favorite activity: bath time. Exposing the dogs at a vulnerable moment, photographer Sophie Gamand is able to capture their wide range of expressions. She believes dogs are more than animals and have acquired a status of persona. They mirror humans and the bond we have developed with them says a lot about our own solitude and social challenges.
Sophie currently works on a book of wet dogs which will come out during the Fall 2015 (Grand Central Publishing/US, Aurum Press/UK, Livre de Poche/France, Riva/Germany). The “Wet Dog” series has won the Portraiture category of the Sony World Photography Awards 2014, and has been published in numerous online and paper publications.
