Budapest, Hungary-based photographer Sarolta Bán has been busy at work on her recent project, Help Dogs with Images. Bán’s project is an attempt to find owners for abandoned animals by increasing visibility of existing sheltered animals through photography. Via her Facebook page, Bán asks people to send her photos of dogs, cats or other animals that are currently in shelters. She then creates photo montages from these images, Photoshopping animals in majestic and fantastically splendid settings where the pet takes center stage. The images are shared on her Facebook page of over 150,000 fans, along with a description, contact info and location of the animal in need of adoption. So far, Bán has received over 400 images to work on. As an extra nudge, future owners will receive a free print of the animal they adopted. Tucker, the black labrador amidst the tall buildings and planes, is the first to the first to find a loving home through the project, adopted earlier this week at the Northwoods Humane Society in Wyoming. Help Dogs with Images continues through June 30th, 2014.
