In an effort to show the softer side of Pit bulls, New York photographer Sophie Gamand decided to photograph them with flower crowns to challenge the world’s perception of pit bulls.
Pit bulls are often perceived as violent and aggressive however this is untrue. They are like any other dog that crave love from owners, training, and socialisation with other dogs.
All the dogs are from shelters, and of the 150 she has photographed, around 110 have been adopted since the photo shoot.
Check out some of the photos below through Sophie’s series Flower Power: Pit Bulls of the Revolution.
