Dog Portrait Exhibit at Best Friends Animal Sanctuary


Last week I drove 14 hours from San Francisco to Kanab, Utah to install my 15 piece black and white dog photography exhibit at Best Friends Animal Sanctuary- the country's largest no-kill animal shelter, known around the world as a leader in animal welfare advocacy and policy, feature of National Geographic's "Dogtown" television series, animal org favorite of the stars, etc. It's a real honor to have a solo show at the sanctuary gallery, where thousands of visitors and staff congregate each day. I took two buddies with me for the drive, and we had some pretty great adventures. Dog Photography Exhibit at Best Friends Animal Sanctuary

The three of us installed 15 dog photographs with the help of Best Friends' "Resident Artist" and gallery coordinator Cyrus Mejia. That evening there was a fun exhibit opening party where we all had punch and snacks, and I got to talk to an amazing group of BFAS staff, their inspiring co-founders, and CEO.

The next day Cyrus gave my friends and I a personal 3 hour tour of the 3,000+ acre Best Friends sanctuary. We saw: goats, pigs, horses, dogs, puppies, cats, birds of all sorts, fish, etc. And I got to hold a bird! On my hand! And it didn't even bite me or anything. Wow.

Then we spent a day at Zion National Park. Our last hike took us to the most beautiful (and precarious) overlook.
