Rescue Me!: Dog Adoption Portraits and Stories from New York City
Richard Phibbs and Richard Jonas
For three years, fashion and portrait photographer Richard Phibbs has donated his services to the Humane Society of New York, making portraits of dogs up for adoption as part of the Manhattan shelter’s work to find them all “forever homes.” The best of his photographs are featured in this simple and moving album, along with the story of each dog on its journey from often-shocking circumstances of abandonment and rejection, through rescue and the joy experienced in the new homes these pictures helped them find. This heartwarming New York story will appeal to dog lovers all over the world. Along with a preface by TK, Phibbs’s own introduction is a passionate appeal for everyone to rescue a dog. The book is perfectly sized and priced for an impulse buy. Royalties from its sale benefit the Humane Society of New York.
