Portrait and editorial photographer Ryan Pfluger recently shot the 136th Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show for Nowness magazine. Pfluger photographed many of the 2,077 competing dogs and their trainers, casting a strong light and capturing the nuances of body language and expression. Pfluger comments, “You can’t give them direction, but you can get beautiful, interesting shots just by letting them exist.”
