You’re probably already following Brandon Stanton’s beautifully inspiring Humans of New York blog, Facebook and/or Instagram. If you love the HONY concept and dogs and you’ve found yourself wishing the two could merge, we have a feeling you’ll enjoy Dogs of New York.
From Dogs of New York:
In July 2013 I started a project called Dogs of New York (DONY). I’m taking photos of the dogs and dog owners I meet in the Big Apple, and sharing excerpts of our conversations. All my photos are unstaged, based on chance encounters I have on the streets of NYC.
DONY is about real people and real dogs in their everyday environments. They’re the ones you don’t hear about in the news, and they’re the stories that don’t get published in memoirs. I was inspired by Humans of New York and how it made individuals out of the 8.3 million people who call this place home, while showing the humanity that binds us together.
I created DONY to celebrate what makes each human-canine bond unique, and to showcase the universal bond between people and pets.
We #celebratephotography here at Adafruit every Saturday. From photographers of all levels to projects you have made or those that inspire you to make, we’re on it! Got a tip? Well, send it in!
