Heartfelt Photos of At-Risk Shelter Dogs (Available for Adoption)

She loves to give and receive affection (especially belly rubs). Lady Bell loves to play with toys. If you put out five toys, she will rotate through them and play with each of them as if she has never seen them before. She doesn’t like being cooped up in a kennel. Having another fun loving, active dog to play with is also important. This soft-headed pup is Beeny. Bumpy Capone, aka Frodo In 2014, North Carolina photographer Mary Shannon Johnstone met a dog named Bumpy Capone at the Wake County Animal Center in Raleigh. Still, no one wanted to adopt Bumpy. The WCAC accepts every dog in need of shelter, and because they are state-funded, they have limited resources.

Johnstone devotes her weekends to photographing and giving voice to shelter animals like Bumpy, who are most at risk of being euthanized. For dogs without homes, it’s quite the adventure. Bumpy Capone’s family gave him a new life and a new name: Frodo. Nora. Guardian Readers’ Travel Photography Competition 2016: Winners. Kevin Pogorzelski, November winner.

“On safari in Kenya, we were forced to stop our jeep for this family of ostriches to cross the dirt track. What made it so engaging was the mother attentively waiting for the chicks to cross while, out of shot, the father was leading the way”. MICK RYAN, JUDGE: Funny-looking flightless birds and their offspring give us comedy and cuteness – and an immediate emotional response. 2011 International Photography Award Winners.

Yuri Kozyrev recalls the winter of 1999 as one of the most trying and tragic of his career as a photographer.

Three Shark Photographers You Need to Follow

It was the eve of Vladimir Putin’s ascent to the Russian presidency, and the height of the Russian bombardment of Chechnya, when entire towns in that breakaway republic were, as the Russians often put it, “made level with the earth.” Kozyrev, a native of Moscow, documented both of Chechnya’s wars against Russia in the 1990s. The first one, fought between 1994 and 1996, had resulted in a humiliating defeat for Russia. But the carnage was far worse when the conflict resumed under Putin in 1999. Arriving in Chechnya that fall, Kozyrev’s plan was to find and photograph two men amid the chaos of the Russian invasion. The aim, says Kozyrev, was to document the two generations of Russian servicemen involved in the conflict – the elder brought up at the height of Soviet power during the Cold War, the younger in the dying years of Moscow’s empire.
