That’s exactly what photographer Fred Levy is trying to convey in his new project, the Black Dogs Project. It’s a photo series that shows black dogs against a dark background and tells the story of the difficulty black dogs face when waiting to be adopted.
According to the statement on the project website, “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.”
