Pit bulls and their humans

I'm continuing a series of portraits of pit bulls and their owners
with Pit Bull Training Team. We shot on Sunday in my studio with three pairs of human/ animal teams. Departing from the past, this time I focused on individual personalities. I got a lot from spending time with each separately, learning their unique traits.

Anthony and and his dog, Nino

The program provides young people with an alternative to dog fighting. Most of the Pit Bull Training Team's participants live in an environment in which people are desensitized to violence and dog fighting is the norm.
