Instagram Sensation ‘The Dogist’ Releases New Photo Book Featuring 1,000 Canines


Polo, French Bulldog, 2 years old. “Polo frequents hospitals as a therapy dog, participates in cancer awareness walks, and helps raise money for homeless shelters.” Excerpted from The Dogist by Elias Weiss Friedman (Artisan Books). Copyright © 2015. Photographs by The Dogist, LLC


Lexi, Mix, 1 year old. “People look at her and think she’s disabled. We consider her ‘specially abled.'”

Before he was The Dogist, New York City-based photographer Elias Weiss Friedman was a little boy who loved dogs. As soon as he could walk, he was found sneaking out with his grandmother’s dog Oreo, who steadfastly and heroically stood between the toddler and the street until they were found by adults. When he got his first camera, his black lab Ruby became his constant muse, always ready to break out a smile and strike a pose. Years later, Friedman has earned his epithet by photographing literally thousands of dogs of all shapes, sizes and colors out and about in the streets of New York and throughout the globe.

For Hip Hop Revolution, legendary photographers Janette Beckman, Joe Conzo and Martha Cooper join together for a group exhibition at the Museum of the City of New York that brings us back to the early days of hip hop. Over one hundred images, spanning the thirteen years between 1977 and 1990, capture the city at a time when hip hop culture, DJing, breaking, and rapping was first taking over the streets, when groups like Salt ’n’ Pepa became fashion icons and the likes Afrika Bambaataa first developed breakbeat mixes. As The Beastie Boys, Run DMC, and Queen Latifa skyrocketed from local New York venues onto the international stage, these three photographers were there alongside them, snapping away at what they knew would be a movement remembered for generations to come.

New Yorkers have always loved their dogs, and the 1940s was no exception.

For City Dogs, LIFE magazine contract photographer Nina Leen created a series of portraits of illustrious Manhattanite artists gallivanting throughout their city with their canine companions, capturing the ineffable ways in which dogs both large and small brighten even the most vital of neighborhoods. City Dogs will be on view at Daniel Cooney Fine Art beginning March 26, 2015.
