>Pit bulls in a New York dog home are given a makeover to change stereotypesSome breeds of dog are unfairly stereotyped, and none more so that the pit bull. We look at a greyhound and think racing, a chihuahua with socialites and the west highland terrier with monopoly. None of these associations are negative and, more importantly, unlikely to affect the decision of a potential adopter. 
Sadly however, there is a misconception of violence surrounding the pit bull, one cultivated by the mishandling of ignorant owners. In an effort to change this mindset about the normally friendly dogs, Brooklyn-based French photographer Sophie Gamand has created a touching photo series. 
In Flower Power, Pit Bulls of the Revolution Gamand used a variety of pit bulls as her models, all of them from animal shelters in New York City. Using floral garlands she casts aside the negative slant and shows them as vulnerable animals.
‘I realised pit bulls were always portrayed in very urban, gritty photographs,” writes Gamand. “The imagery associated with these dogs is often harsh, very contrasted, conveying the idea of them being tough. In my opinion, this feeds the myth that these dogs are dormant psychopaths. So I decided to take the other route and portray them like hippies, soft fairy-tale-inspired characters, feminine and dreamy.’
All of the featured pit bulls are currently being looked after at Sean Casey Rescue , Second Chance Rescue or Animal Haven.

I understand. That’s the trouble. I understand. I’ll understand all the time. All day and all night. Especially all night. I’ll understand. You don’t have to worry about that.

“I mean, if you were to find a shattered mirror, find all the pieces, all the shards and all the tiny chips, and have whatever skill and patience it took to put all that broken glass back together so that it was complete once again, the restored mirror would still be spiderwebbed with cracks, it would still be a useless glued version of its former self, which could show only fragmented reflections of anyone looking into it. Some things are beyond repair. And that was me.”
