This gallery contains most of the Flower Power portraits I have created since I started the project in the summer 2014. I travel around the U.S. to photograph shelter pit bulls in need of adoption. The flower crowns are an invitation for the viewer to look at pit bulls with a new eye. Hundreds of thousands of pit bull-type dogs languish in shelters around the world, because of our prejudice. Most of them end up euthanized. Their owners get evicted or have difficulties finding apartments. Some cities or countries ban them, which leads to terrible consequences. Because of our prejudice, pit bulls have been marginalized, making them the most neglected and abused dogs. The shelter pit bulls I meet are great companions who wouldn't hurt a fly. They deserve better. Flower Power aims at changing the way we see pit bulls, so we can treat them more fairly. Follow the hashtag #PitBullFlowerPower on social media! Sign up for my Newsletter (I will launch a Kickstarter campaign to fund the Flower Power book soon!).

I do my best to keep this list updated. If you or someone you know is looking to adopt a dog check these doggies! You'll find links to their official adoption page with each image. For additional info and more adoptable dogs (daily posts), follow my Facebook page or Instagram account. And if you would like to support the project, you can purchase:
