Afghan Hound

Photo and caption by Diego Rodriguez Tello

My name is Diego Rodriguez and this is one of the models of a series of portraits called Pure Breed Portraiture, in which the photograph explores the world of dog breeding in Colombia. The specimen, defined as "model" carefully breeded, has a pure genetic composition which is varied in sizes, shapes and colors. The importance of this work, on exhibition dogs is to show that the breading of these animals is complex. This is an extensive process of which there is no certainty of results. Breeding conditions may be the best, but this does not ensure that the dog can become a champion.

Location: Bogota, Colombia
