Bath time is the worst one for a dog. Bearing that in mind, photographer Sophie Gamand is shooting their reactions in a series of portrets, called “Wet Dog”. Moreover, thanks to it, she has won the Sony World Photography Award, in the portrets category.
The expressions dogs have, both during and after this procedure, may seem really funny to us, but they are a result of their psychology at the time. The French photographer considers dogs as the mirror of our society, since the bond that exists between a dog and its owner, is indicative of the loneliness and continuing social changes.
Sophie Gamand will be publishing a book, containing dog portrets during that weird moment for them, in Fall 2015.
