I’ve been a fan of the Dogist for a while now, and I’ve even started my own Instagram based off of his called Dogs of KU (follow it if you haven’t yet!). The Dogist is run by Elias Weiss Friedmann, a photographer based in New York that grew up with both a love of photography and dogs. He set out to photograph a dog a day in New York just when Instagram was taking off, and it’s grown from there.
I absolutely love his work and so when I heard his book tour was coming to KC, I knew I had to go. I went to go meet him with my parents and got his book as well. Being able to meet a photographer that I look up to was super cool and I got to show him my Dogs of KU Instagram as well.
If you don’t follow the Dogist yet, I definitely recommend it.
Thanks for reading!
