Incredible Photo Manipulation Series Helps Shelter Animals Find Homes

418494316782

Budapest-based photographer Sarolta Bán is on a mission to shed a positive light on all shelter animals by creating images that will capture the eyes — and hearts — of anyone considering the pups for adoption.

Aptly titled “Help Dogs with Images,” Bán uses her background in digital photo manipulation to bring standard images of shelter animals to life in magical ways.

But that’s not all. She doesn’t just create these images; once one of the dogs is adopted, she will send a print of the image to the new owners of her subject as a sort of reward. She explained the plight of shelter animals and the role of photography in helping them find a home when she spoke to the Huffington Post:

There is a [low chance] for shelter animals to get adopted because they get little visibility. That’s why it’s a really great idea that everybody can be a hero with a single iPhone if they take a picture of a shelter dog, and upload it to the Internet.

The conceptual images make for some interesting scenes with some adorable four-legged friends. Below are some of the images from Bán’s series:

    you’re all going straight to photographers hell for being mean to the doggies. All on camera flash and no terry richardsons subjects for you.

  • Larissa

    This is a really great thing to do for shelter animals! I don’t know why people think they’re any less “good” than other dogs. They’re not broken, they just come from broken people! Kudos to you Sarolta!
