As they say, there is beauty in imperfection. This also goes to our canine buddies who got imperfections in their physical appearances.
One photographer captures the beauty of these rescued dogs. She is Alex Cearns, an Australian animal photographer.
There are 60 dog portraits in total. And Cearns released this new book with the title “Perfect Imperfections: Dog Portraits of Resilience and Love.”.
The dogs included in the portraits include adorable pups that have disabilities, such as a dog with one eye and a pup in a wheelchair.
It includes Bandit, a dog that is a victim of a vicious acid attack. The terrier, Dot, who lost an eye. Bali Pip, the mange survivor.
According to Cearns, one of her passionate aims as an animal photographer is to capture the things that make creatures precious and unique. She uses photography as a platform to get this message across.
“I love every animal I have the privilege of photographing, but those perceived as ‘different’ hold a special place in my heart,”, she added.
She also said that animals with seen physical differences always want to be included and to be treated just as ‘normal’ ones are treated.
The dog portraits have shown that despite these challenges, these fighter canine buddies never backed down. They are living and they also want the same hugs and pets and attention that the normal dogs receive.
These dogs also have a low chance to be adopted in shelters, as some people want a ‘perfect’ pet that they can take on a stroll outside and can show to the public. However, Cearns photography is shouting a specific statement: every dog deserves a chance, a chance in life, to love, and to be loved.
