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.
Here are the rest of the submission to our Small Victories project. My apologies for taking so long to get these online! In my defense it really does take a long time to scan in each photo by hand, but there’s no excuse! Many of these photos travelled with me to Hong Kong but the size of the gallery dictated the amount of work we could display.
I want to thank everyone who took the time to participate in this project, you’ve all contributed to something really special here! I am excited to continue collaborating with all of you.
