What’s Lady Gaga has to do on Luxury Dog The Blog?!
You will probably answer “Nothing!” and you’ll be right…
But if i talk about the work of the artist Jesse Freidin, then it takes sense.
Jesse Freidin is one of America’s Leading fine art dog photographers. Born in 1981 in Boston he is a photographer sing traditional film-based process. He is best known for creating a series of photos of dogs dressed in costumes like those worn by Lady Gaga. Jesse Freidin is a supporter of the San Francisco Bay Area dog community, donating his time and resources to animal rescue groups and non-profits such as Bay Area Dog Lovers Responsible About Pit Bulls (Bad Rap) and Rocket Dog Rescue, as well as various educational endeavors. He lives in San Francisco with his best friend, Pancake (a 4 year old Boston Terrier).
For his ‘Doggie Gaga Project’, in early 2010, Freidin dressed canine models in five of Lady Gaga’s most celebrated outfits, and photographed them using two packs of Polaroid film from the last remaining supply in the world. Within three days of posting the photos online, gossip columnist Perez Hilton found and tweeted them, setting off viral coverage on TV, radio, and websites worldwide. In 6 days, his website had 80,000 hits, and his work was being seen and discussed on 140 countries. Freidin worked with a small team, creating custom-made, Lady Gaga-inspired canine fashions for a Mexican hairless, a Shibu Inu, two Pit Bulls, and his Boston Terrier, Pancake.
