I work with the volunteer group LA Shelter Pet Connect in service to South Los Angeles Animal Shelter, taking photographs of the cats and dogs that are available for adoption. Because intake photos are taken at the height of an animal’s anxiety since they are just being introduced into a foreign environment, they are often scared and not their best selves in the images. We work together as a team to build trust and connection within the few minutes that we have together to capture each animal in a new light. This is a selection of some of those images.
