Sophie Gamand is a French photographer living and working in New York. Since 2010, Gamand’s photography explores the complex dynamics of the relationship between dogs and humans. With both a documentary and fine-art approaches, she questions the place that dogs occupy in the human society. Her series Wet Dog showcases portraits of dogs photographed during their least favorite activity: bath time. Exposing the dogs at a vulnerable moment, Gamand is able to capture their wide range of expressions. She believes dogs are more than animals and have acquired a status of persona. They mirror humans and the bond we have developed with them says a lot about our own solitude and social challenges. Gamand also donates photography time and expertise to animal charities and shelters.
