Often seen as sad, rejected, and behind cold metal bars, it's no wonder people would avoid images of shelter dogs awaiting forever homes. From talented photographer (and now public figure and adoption champion) Guinnivere Shuster comes Shelter Dogs in a Photo Booth, a guaranteed-to-make-you-smile photo book featuring shelter dogs in a brand-new light. Get ready to see the cutest canine portraits you’ve ever seen! Guinnevere’s fantastic photos went viral and have been featured on websites, in magazines, and on television programs all over the world: Good Morning America, NBC, ABC, MSNBC, The Huffington Post, Time, The Daily Mail . . . even celebrities have gotten in on the action: Amy Poehler, Cesar Millan, and Zooey Deschanel have made statements and posts declaring their love of Guinnevere’s work. After the adorable and up-for-adoption photos of these furry friends were seen and enjoyed by millions, adoption rates at Utah's Humane Society skyrocketed.
The book features 100 dog photo booth style photographs, each accompanied by a short story about the dog's personality, how the dog ended up in the shelter, and the adoption date. A follow-up will conclude the book, with photos of some of them with their new families.
A portion of the proceeds of this book will benefit the Humane Society of Utah and Best Friends Animal Society. @goodreads
I totally love this book and it's already on my Amazon wishlist to buy! I wish I could take pictures of shelter dogs like this wonderful photographer, to be able to help the dogs in this way is such a wonderful idea.
The pictures of all the dogs were funny, sweet and so darn cute. The author even gave a little synopsis of the dog at the bottom of their pictures. I won't go into that too much as people make me so mad, and lets just leave it at that.. oh and please research a dog before you get one to see if it fits with who you are and your lifestyle so we can help keep them out of shelters!
In the back of the book, the author added a few pictures of the dogs that have been adopted, I wish we could have seen pictures of all of them in happy homes :-) I do hope all of the ones adopted got to stay in the home that chose them.
Once again, the pictures of these beautiful dogs are amazing and some really funny. I enjoyed this book immensely and like I said, I do intend to buy it when it comes out, not only because of the beautiful pictures but also because the proceeds go to the Utah Animal Shelter where these pictures where taken and Best Friends Animal Society where I have been a member for years! :-) Kudos!
And after :-)
