Richard Phibbs a Fashion and Portrait photographer believes photographs can change, inspire, and motivate. Since 2012, he has donated his services to the Humane Society of New York to create portraits of dogs up for adoption to help find them “forever homes”. The best of his photographs are featured in a new publication, “Rescue Me” (Aperture, 2016). Every dog has a story and it is published along with the photographs. Some of the journeys are quite tough from shocking circumstances to the joy of a new home filled with love. Thes pictures helped the dogs find their home.
Phibbs’ photographs are far more than dog portraits; they are heartwarming stories for animal lovers all over the world.
