This is beautiful!
100 rescue dogs searched the rubble of the World Trade Center for survivors and then for remains during the weeks after the plane attacks on September 11th, 2001. I spotted an interview in The Daily Mail with Dutch photographer Charlotte Dumas about her book which “captured the remaining dogs in their twilight years in their homes where they still live with their handlers, a full decade on from 9/11.” The portraits are sweet, like the one above, of the dogs at home juxtaposed with pictures of the horrible event that brought them all together and stories about their encounters with survivors and with other rescue workers. I am so glad she did this now because they are a rapidly vanishing resource. When Dumas began travelling the US to take these portraits fifteen of the dogs were still alive, only thirteen are still with us.
