Wet Dog Photography Rightly Wins Award

The winners of the 2014 Sony World Photography Awards were announced last week and with it, we've learned thanks to Animal NY that finally, wet dog photography is finding its place. Photographer Sophie Gamand of France has won the Portraiture award.

A whole host of Gamand's wet dog portraits are at her website, where she describes her project as images of dogs during their most "vulnerable and humiliating moment," but here are some of the best, if you're looking for new wall decor.

This is Britney.
