In her photo series, ‘Flower Power’, Brooklyn-based French photographer Sophie Gamand captured stunning portraits of a group of pit bulls by adorning their heads with flower crowns.
“Flower Power, Pit Bulls of the Revolution” is a series dedicated to the dogs grouped under the name of pit bulls. I wished to portray this misunderstood group in a different light. The general public and news media consider a “pit bull” a dog that belongs to one of the following breeds, or simply looks like one: the American Pit Bull Terrier, the Staffordshire Bull Terrier, the American Staffordshire Terrier, the Bull Terrier, or any mix. To put it in a nutshell, most “Pit bulls” are judged based on certain physical characteristics. Moreover, if they physically look like they belong to that group, they will be deemed dangerous by many, with no regard to their individual temperament.
