This photo series started after a conversation about how black dogs have a harder time getting adopted then other dogs. I decided to start a photo series photographing black dogs on a black background in my studio. Using social media, I've been recruiting local dog owners who have black dogs to photograph. It's an amazing journey that will hopefully become a book. To see more, visit Black Dogs Project .
