Lanola Stone is a professional photographer, artist, author and educator based in New York City. To help out at a local animal shelter, Stone used all her photography skills to help find a new home for the longest-staying animals in the shelter. Nobody adopted the animals for various reasons, some of them are too old, some are less beautiful, but Lanola presented them in her pictures in such a way that people had a desire to have such a pet.
Here is what the author of the photographs says about this:
“The idea was to create a series of ‘fashionable and stylish images’ of those animals that no one wanted to adopt for a long period of time (some dogs were in the shelter for more than six months). I decided to make their portraits in such a way as to represent them with their own distinct personality, to help them find a new home. All dogs pictured here have been accepted.”
The fact that all the animals in the photographs were taken is truly amazing. This experience should definitely be adopted by photographers around the world and help our smaller brothers find new friends and owners. Continue reading also about pit bulls — victims of human indifference.
