Approximately 100 dogs were sent into the rubble of the September 11, 2001 attacks to search and recover victims trapped under the fallen structures. 10 years later, photographer Charlotte Dumas managed to track down 15 of the dogs still living, and captured them in a collection of portraits titled “Retrieved”. See more below.

    I can’t believe that many of the dogs are still around. I thought big dogs like that only lived 7-8 years. Very cool project.

    I’m not generally the sentimental type, but my old dog weakness has been uncovered. Beautiful portraits; they really capture the personality of each pup!




    bello trabajo! :D

    This is beautiful! My old dog was just one year on 9/11 (it is his birthday) and we must have walked miles that day (even with the fighter jets buzzing around overhead – I live in D.C.’s Virginia suburbs) because I just had to get away from it all. He is still with me (despite a recent health scare) so these photos touched me very much. I am happy that these wonderful & beautiful dogs are still with their people too.

    Always been checking this website in order to watch the pictures, photos, videos etc. My life is different now when i’m living in an mental health centre!!!!!! But today was the first time I realized how much you really can love the internet.

    THANK YOU, i will soon cry <3

Secret Studio Hidden Beneath Overpass by Designer Fernando Abellanas

Designer Fernando Abellanas has constructed a tiny studio beneath a busy overpass in Spain. Complete with movable walls, light furnishings and a hand crank that transports the structure along two metal rails, the micro-dwelling hangs high above the ground in a manner reminiscent to the kind of secret hideaway or fort one might have as a child. See more images by Jose Manuel Pedrajas below!
