This pit bull portrait series blatantly flies in the face of all the negative assumptions surrounding this beautiful breed. It turns these canines into fairy tale creatures that are full of charm and happiness. Wreathed with flower crowns and gazing softly through a colorful haze, there is nothing remotely dangerous about these dogs.
What makes this pit bull portrait series even more touching is the fact that it was shot by a photographer who was attacked by a large, black Briard when she was 13. To overcome her fear of big dogs, Sophie Gamand has created an impressive portfolio of animal shelter photography. Always creative in her captures, these pit bull portraits are just the tip of the ice berg.
