My apologies for not posting yesterday. After the devastating result of the Super Bowl, I decided to take some time off from social media and the news. I am rejoining you today to share some stunning photographs of the weathered, the tested, the resilient and yet the strong. Appropriate, right? :)
The black and white photos, taken by artist Traer Scott, are of shelter dogs. A little about the series, which will soon be turned into a book:
"The portraits reveal the strikingly intense emotion, dignity and, sometimes, humour and whimsy that Scott saw in each face despite the dog's circumstances. By documenting the undeniable expressions of emotion in the dogs encountered in her volunteer work, Scott raises awareness of animal rescue causes, and especially the need for more adoptive homes for abandoned dogs. This book of true portraits of fifty beautiful shelter dogs is a poignant and loving tribute to all dogs."Learn more here.
The color photographs, taken by Anchorage-based artist Tim Remick, are of mountain climbers who have recently finished their climbs. As Remick said,
“I wanted to document that point where the human body goes past exhaustion, where people hit that wall and push beyond it. There were all sorts of responses based on the environment, the weather, whether their experience was positive or negative. It was all reflected in their faces.”Learn more here.
I hope you all have a great day; I will see you back here tomorrow. Until then, stay strong!
