Which one is your favorite out of these 11 photos?
There's a reason why dogs are known to be man's best friend. These adorable furry goofballs are loyal, loving, and most importantly, they are willing to do whatever we ask them in return for a few treats and love. A French photographer named Vincent Flouret has been working on a project that is very close to his heart and it features none other than his beloved six-year-old golden retriever, Max. Flouret started doing these photoshoots with his four-legged buddy after volunteering with City Shelters in L.A where he was helping the dogs get adopted by making studio portraits.
In order to make these portraits stand apart, he used a dash of glamor from the fashion models and recreated them with his best buddy, Max. Turns out, Max has a natural talent when it comes to posing. In a conversation with Bored Panda, the photographer said, "He is my priority. Everything is like a game for him so yes, for example, if he needs a hat for a picture, I buy it weeks before and we play with it like if it’s one of his pet toys. And so, it’s ‘normal’ and fun for him when we shoot for real weeks later.”
Now, Max and Vincent have taken up another project where they have recreated iconic music video scenes and album covers by Madonna and Max absolutely slays it. The project is aptly titled “Maxdonna" and the furball looks extremely endearing. Flouret said, "These pictures, between the shoots, the homemade costumes, the training took me 8 months to do. I am a big fan of Madonna, these pictures I’m doing with Max are tributes to artists that I love and respect. It’s a break between my commercial work, that is bringing me to the simple pleasure of pure creation, love, and happiness.”
Apart from being one of the most adorable projects that we have across recently, what makes this even more special is that it has a charitable aspect attached to it. All the proceedings collected from the prints will go to Madonna’s charity Raising Malawi, a nonprofit organization that focuses on improving the living conditions of orphans and vulnerable children in Malawi.
