Photographer Crush: Joanna Totolici

Thanks to @patrickwinfield for sharing these poignant, hilarious, wonderful dog portraits by New York based fashion photographer Joanna Totolici

I love her explanation for making these portraits of man's best friend:

TotoPhoto studio was conceived out of annoyance at pets portrayed wearing tutus, lipstick, riding tricycles or playing cards while smoking cigars. At TotoPhoto we take pride in our work, and we let the dogs keep their pride too, even if their personality is that of a clown. We capture doggie antics, but never at the price of doggie dignity.

This one made me laugh:
