Author Paul Nathan Selects Whitegate PR as Agency of Record to Launch “Groomed” Book
New York City based photographer, Paul Nathan, recently launched his book "Groomed.” Dog grooming is all about the visual pleasure that stems from creating balance, symmetry, and freedom of movement.
Paul Nathan became enamored with the idea of capturing the most manicured and primped Poodles, Cocker spaniels, Bichon Frise's, Bedlington Terriers and more. He focused on the texture of the coat and the expression, photographing most of the dogs in this book at high profile grooming competitions and paying special attention to the aesthetic accomplishments of some of the world's top dog groomers.
His portraits showcase beauty for beauty's sake, even in some of the more extreme photographs documenting the 'creative' category where the dog's hair or fur is manipulated into shapes or scenes and dyed different colors. Learn more at: http://www.pelluceo.com/
Paul’s first book, “Couture Dogs of New York,” focused on pups clad in designer duds. “Groomed” documents another canine subculture: creative grooming, where pups are cut and colored to resemble anything from leopards to tropical beach scenes. The images in the creative grooming section of “Groomed” were taken last April at Intergroom in New Jersey. Intergroom is one of the largest international conferences of its kind in the world with more than 2000 dog and cat groomers attending each year. This year’s Intergroom is coming up on April 5-7th, 2014.
