Pit Bulls In Floral Crowns: Would You Adopt A Pit Bull?

Here in the UK, pit bull terriers are completely banned, I’ve never even seen one in real life. Because of this I have always associated all pit bulls with this, and more importantly with danger. Around the world they have an incredibly bad reputation as being aggressive, ferocious and even frightening.

Sophie Gamand, a French photographer currently based in the USA, wants to change this perception of pit bulls the world seems to have. In her new series entitled ‘Flower Power, Pit Bulls Of The Revolution‘ Gamand features pit bulls from shelters around New York that are waiting to be adopted wearing flower crowns.

All proceeds from any prints bought will go straight to the shelters that home the dogs, but mostly Gamand wishes to change our views on these misunderstood creatures.

“An estimated 1,000,000 pit bulls are euthanized each year in America’s shelters. Victims of prejudices, uneducated laws and urban tales that associate them with ultra violence, they are probably the most misunderstood dogs. Pit bulls, like any terrier dogs, are strong and powerful animals. There is no denying that. But power dose not necessairly mean violence. Most pit bulls are peaceful and sweet love bugs. Their power is in their snuggles and unconditional love.”

– Sophie Gamand, on ‘Flower Power
