Alicja Zmyslowska is a Polish photographer with a passion and a gift for capturing puppies… lots and lots of puppies. From family portraits of pooches and their siblings to sports photos of dogs running through courses, she photographs anything and everything that has to do with man’s best friend, and manages to make her photos stand out from the plethora of dog imagery out there.
Zmyslowska had always been around photography thanks to her brother and father, who are both photographers as well. But it wasn’t until around 2006, when she received a golden retriever puppy, that she truly found her passion behind the lens.
Since then, she’s become more than enamored with taking pooch portraits. Whether its her own dog or an abandoned dog looking for a new home, Zmyslowska adores every second of using her talents to share her love for these animals with the world.
As she tells My Modern Met:
[I] love to share my passion and love for dogs through my photography. I want to show what’s best in each dog, I want to catch their souls. When I take pictures of homeless dogs, I want to help them find new and loving homes.
Below are just a few of the many photographs she kindly shared with us:
