Best in Show is a collection of photographs of well-groomed and award-winning dogs by New York City–based photographer Dolly Faibyshev.
The images from the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show and beyond focus on the unique—and often humorous—relationship between each dog and their handler.
Dolly Faibyshev focuses on kitsch, irony, and the larger than life human and canine characters that make up Best in Show. The result is a colorful, vibrant, campy, and satirical take on this specific slice of Americana.
• The colorful, closely cropped juxtapositions of each coiffed canine contestant and their dedicated human are both humorous and charming. • Sure to delight fans of all breeds of dogs • A universal and ideal gift for all canine lovers with a sense of humor
