Wet dogs win best portrait award

Photographer Sophie Gamand has won the Portraiture award in the prestigious Sony World Photography Awards 2014 with her series of portraits of dogs during their least favourite pastime – bath time.

The fantastically expressive pictures capture the group of damp dogs at their most “vulnerable and humiliating moment” whilst also celebrating them “for what they really are: more than just animals.”

The portrait series, aptly titled ‘Wet Dog’, will be published in a book due out in the autumn of 2015.
