Dog Parade

Tompkin Square Park Halloween Dog Parade

An insight in to the annual Halloween Tompkin Square Park dog parade in New York. Capturing the many amazing two legged and four legged characters. This personal project was picked up by It’s Nice That.

My interest in this subject was equally proportioned between the dogs but also their owners, who had gone to so much time, effort and expense to dress them and their dogs up for the event. In order to tell the story I shot a mixture of posed portraits and reportage shots to offer a true representation of the people and atmosphere.
