The dog photographer Sophie Gamand documents a sad situation for dogs without a home in Puerto Rico

We were used to the meticulous portraits by Sophie Gamand. In fact, we already published some of her project here on IWWD: Flower Power, Wet Dog…Pictures taken always in her set, where every hair was cared for, sometime to comb them and some other times to rumple them, just in like any other fashion or beauty session with humans. This time, the photographer from the USA brings yet another surprise with her most social facet. We are talking about the project “Dead Dog Beach”. That’s the name of the paradise-like beaches in the south west of Puerto Rico, Playa Lucía, now known because of the large amount of homeless dogs living and dying there. In the island, with less than 4 million inhabitants, there are 250,000 homeless dogs. Sato is the name that Puerto Ricans use to call them. They are usually medium size dogs, cross breeds, with a short life span because of the tough conditions of their lives and, after being mistreated generation after generation, generally they are wary in the beginning. Luckily, they are not entirely alone. There is an organization, The Sato Project, that gives them food and water, veterinary care, sterilization treatment… and finally, they try to find a home for them in the USA. A process that costs around $1,000 for each dog. That’s why, people like César Millán or Sophie Gamand denounce the situation, their way, Sophie for example, with her pictures. All of them look for the same objective: raise funds for this organizations so that they are able to do their work and so end these sad situations. [iww]
