About the event

Fotografiska members are invited to join us for an exclusive exhibition preview of Best in Show with the artists, special guest appearances by Badlands Ranch founder Katherine Heigl and Pet Gala founder Anthony Rubio, and DJ set by Bearcat. Arrive by 7 PM for a meet & greet with Maxine the Fluffy Corgi!

With 25 artists, 131 photographs, and accompanying video installations and sculpture Best in Show: Pets in Contemporary Photography explores the intimately personal relationships between pets and their owners. The sprawling exhibition is a deep dive into the role our furry (and feathered) friends have played in culture and how they stand in as representations of status, power, loyalty, compassion, and companionship.

Among the works on view are examples by William Wegman, famed for his portraits of his Weimaraners; Walter Chandoha, the world’s first professional cat photographer; Sophie Gamand, known for her touching, sensitive photographs of dogs taking baths; and Martin Parr’s satirical portrayals of pets across social classes.
