Talented Hungarian photographer Sarolta Ban is back with more of her distinctive surreal images, but this time there’s a noble purpose behind her work – each image is meant to portray a shelter animal in a new light and help them find a loving home.
Everything seems to have begun with one image of a white dog that, according to Ban’s Facebook, she adopted. She went on to create a whole series of images featuring furry friends that are looking for homes.
She also started collecting images of animals from all over the world that are looking for homes. She plans to create beautiful images for them as well, and will gift copies of these beautiful images to the people that choose to adopt them.
“Abandoned dogs sadly have really few chances to appear on a photo that will help them get out of the shelter… [one] that stands out from the crowd, and ‘speaks’ to a person,” she explains on the project’s page.
If you enjoy her artwork, be sure to check out her page as well and buy a print or even get acquainted with a new furry friend!
Economist by profession and photographer by calling, Andy Prokh takes charming black-and-white photos of his 4-year-old daughter and their cat. He’s been capturing the beautiful friendship ever since his offspring Katherine was born. At that time the pet was already two years old, so Katherine has spent her entire life with LiLu Blue Royal Lada. The British Shorthair seems to enjoy playing with the girl as much as she does.
Looks like the couple have a lot in common and complete each other. You can tell that Katherine and LiLu relish the arts, science and education: while the cat is more of a gentle and artistic soul that likes to paint and enjoys music, Katherine is more of a tutor and leader. So different and at the same time so similar, the two friends define how a friendship should grow and be. Here’s a rush of good emotions for the weekend!
