Adorable Portraits of Puppies Enjoying a Good Shake





For dogs, shaking off can a calming activity, one that relaxes the muscles while getting rid of pesky moisture, bugs, or even negative emotions. For Portland-based photographer Carli Davidson, dogs provide a similar sense of restoration and healing. In the sometimes painful world we live in, our furry friends are always there to remind us of what’s so beautiful, silly, and joyous about life. On the heels of her viral hit SHAKE, in which she captured dogs in the midst of a particularly satisfying shimmy, Davidson presents her new book SHAKE Puppies.

Portraits Capture the Joy and Suffering of the Ugandan People



Photographer Gloria Baker Feinstein first arrived in Uganda in 2006 to participate in a photography workshop. She had no intention of returning, but the children, particularly those at St. Mary Kevin Orphanage in Kajjansi, got under her skin. Hoping to maintain a long term relationship with them, she has returned seven times and even established a non-profit, Change the Truth, to assist and provide them with opportunities they otherwise wouldn’t have. Her photo series, simply titled Uganda, began to grow and evolve to include the villagers who live near the orphanage and particularly the grandmothers who help raise the children. To this community, she is known as “Mama Gloria,” and through photography she seeks to share the stories and struggles of Ugandan people.
