Salvados

<p> We first met <a href="http://www.mathiasdelattre.com/" target="_blank">Mathias De Lattre</a>, a talented young portrait photographer, at a portfolio reading organised by <a href="http://www.fetart.org" target="_blank">Fetart</a>. </p> <p>  </p> <p> After seeing and loving the series of photos he had taken of <a href="http://www.mathiasdelattre.com/AetD-maquette.html" target="_blank">his mother’s greyhounds</a>, and learning about the scandalous treatment that similar races (Podencos and Galgos) endure in Spain, I decided to organise an exhibition using the great photos that Mathias had taken of these races of dogs, saved from torture and death in Spain.</p> <p>  </p> <p> The exhibition will start on 21st April at the Belle Juliette gallery in Paris. Mathias and I have decided to publish <strong>a</strong> <strong>beautiful 40-page catalogue, designed by the <a href="http://www.neutre.be/" target="_blank">Neutre</a> graphic design agency in Belgium, with a limited edition of 1,000 copies printed</strong>.</p> <p>  </p> <p> Part of the proceeds of the sale will go to the non-profit groups that do an <em>incredible</em> job saving these magnificent dogs with the little funds they have.</p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="Milo_12" src="https://kkbb-production.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/project_image/image/71413/Milo_12.jpg"></p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="Gazhal_07" src="https://kkbb-production.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/project_image/image/71414/Gazhal_07.jpg"></p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="Armani_03" src="https://kkbb-production.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/project_image/image/71416/Armani_03.jpg"></p>

Allocation of funds

<p> We want to publish a limited edition catalogue (1,000 copies) of the exhibition. Part of the proceeds will be shared between a number of non-profit groups that rescue these dogs from mistreatment in Spain.</p> <p>  </p> <p> The non-profit groups include:</p> <p>  </p> <p> - The <a href="http://bit.ly/esperanzadelsur" target="_blank">Esperanza del Sur refuge</a> which really needs our help</p> <p> - <a href="http://www.levriers-du-sud.org" target="_blank">Lévriers du Sud</a></p> <p> - <a href="http://www.galgosfrance.net" target="_blank">Galgos de France</a></p> <p> - <a href="http://www.levriers-co.fr" target="_blank">Lévriers &amp; compagnie</a></p> <p> - <a href="http://www.passionlevriers.com" target="_blank">Passion Lévriers</a></p>
