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.

animals and a new home

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.
