Gerrard Gethings’ new exhibition features gorgeous celebrity pooch portraits. But can you guess which dog belongs to which celebrity? By Sian Parry
Privileged pooches cant throw benefits for their less fortunate friends. So renowned animal photographer Gerrard Gethings is giving them a helping paw. Having taken portraits of dozens of celebrities dogs companions to people like Daisy Lowe, Elle McPherson and Mark Ronson the portraits are now being auctioned online to raise money for the Dogs Trust. This online auction comes with an accompanying free exhibition, The Company Of Dogs, opens March 21 at the Gallery, 81 Leonard Street, London EC2. Its being done in conjunction with PetsPjyamas, a chic online doggie shopping destination (we cant believe they didnt call it Pet-a-Porter either.) But if youre popping by, be prepared: alongside the celeb pet portraits are gorgeous photos of dogs currently looking for new homes with the Dogs Trust. So you may just come home with a new four legged friend…
