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.
