Comical Portraits of Hairless Dogs by Sophie Gamand

Comical Portraits of Hairless Dogs by Sophie Gamand

Sophie Gamand  examines the extremely strange and comical appearance of various hairless dogs in her latest project  Prophecy . Gamand worked mostly with two types of dogs, the Chinese Crested and the Xoloitzcuintli (commonly the Mexican hairless dog). From her statement about Prophecy:

The physical qualities of hairless dogs and the mystery surrounding them inspired me to create a gallery of faces like old wise men or philosophers, shamans from a different era, maybe a different universe. Gamand imagined her models as Philippus, the Prophet in The Adventures of Tintin would say: “The judgment is upon you! The end is near!”

The series includes some 20 portraits, many more of which you can see on her website.
