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.

    THANK YOU, i will soon cry <3

Trippy Anamorphic Sculptures by Artist Jonty Hurwitz

London-based artist Jonty Hurwitz transforms warped digital renderings into incredible anamorphic sculptures made out of bronze, copper, plaster and paint. “Anamorphosis” relates to purposeful distortions that depend on an additional device or precise vantage point to reconstruct the image. In Hurwitz’s case, cylindrical mirrors reveal each sculptures true form. See more below!
