Entry Description

Mutts is a series of portraits of mixed breed rescue dogs photographed to raise awareness of the sheer number of mutts sitting in shelters worldwide. These images form part of a larger series of photographs that I will be self publishing as a book in October this year after a very successful crowdfunding campaign. I'm passionate about promoting shelter dog adoption and this project is my way of making a difference by highlighting the variety and unique beauty of Mutts. I hope that people will see these photographs and be able to appreciate the dogs for their individuality rather than seeing them as inferior because they aren't pedigree dogs.
