Dogs of 9/11

We all remember where we were on that tragic day in September 2001. To help out in the gaping wound that was ground zero, men’s best friend assisted in the search for bodies and hopefully a recovery, a miracle. What had become of these animals? Are they still among us?

Dutch photographer Charlotte Dumas wondered about these dogs and visited 15 of them. She doesn’t take the typical rescue dog portrait. The photo we always see in newspapers. A dog in front of a fire truck. No, instead Charlotte manages to come very close. And takes a personal portrait.  The posing dogs seem to look at us with a feel of experience. And somehow you can feel the tragic they share.
