Budapest based photographer and artist Sarolta Bán wanted to put her talent and social impact to a good use. Over the years her surreal style drove a following of over 124,000 Facebook fan and now she is giving something back to the community.
Ban is using her talent to aid sheltered dogs find a new home by taking their photos and recomposing them into surreal works of art.
The project asks for photos of animals in need of shelter. Ban will then create a wonderful composite of him/her/it to raise visibility for adoption and will later award the photo to anyone who adopts the dog. On the project page she shares:
Abandoned dogs sadly have really few chances to appear on a photo that will help them get out of the shelter. A photo that stands out from the crowd, and ‘speaks’ to a person.
So I was thinking what if I ask you to send me photos of dogs (and cats or other animals) who need a home and I’ll create photo montages with them. This can bring extra visibility and maybe helps to give bigger impact. The future owner will get a free print of the picture.
Ban also shares some before/after photos which show the dogs in their natural habitat. Still adorable
