Final Compositions

The following seven pictures are a series that I created for my final project in COM 295, taken at SUNY Polytechnic Institute in Fall 2015.

For this project I decided to have a simple, minimalist theme throughout all seven compositions. There is a picture of a distressed dog, with a caption speaking to the audience, or viewer of the piece.

The organization that I chose for the project was the International Animal Rescue, a non-profit organization coming out of the U.K. which has spread to other countries to help rescue and foster animals who have faced unimaginable cruelty dealt to them by humans or natural disasters. You can read up on their mission and support themĀ here.

In the past 3 years, I have really taken to advocating for animal rights and treating them as proper living, sentient creatures. From my choice a few years back to go vegan, to volunteering time at my local animal shelter, I enjoyed the opportunity to create images to advocate for the proper treatment of animals.

Each of these dogs had a life story that went untold, but was captured in these pictures hours before they were euthanized in Taiwan.
