A toast to all mothers and fathers out there. Of humans and animals. Of whatever definition. Whether raising a child, or bringing a companion dog into your home- parenting is one of the most influential and inspirational roles a person can play. Happy Mother's Day, mothers. And fathers. We're all in this together. Here are some wonderful black and white dog portraits I created last summer in New York's Thompkins Square Park. Beautful light, wonderful people, and that perfect soft feel from the Hasselblad's analog system. This is real photography.
