Grace Chon is a self-taught photographer and a former art director in the advertising industry. The girl is absolutely talented, no doubt, but it’s this merge that’s making her so special.
She uses her art director background to merge it with her photography work and creates the most amazing portraits of people and animals.
For example, she photographs homeless dogs, but what she does later is where it becomes more awesome. After photographing them, Grace donates her photography services every year to multiple dog rescue groups in Los Angeles, where she also lives with her husband and baby boy. Maeby and Zoey, their rescued dogs, are also part of their family.
“I’ve always found before and after photos from dog grooming to be really funny,” Grace said on her social media. “Usually, it doesn’t even look like it’s the same dog in each photo!”
And out of this, came an idea. A photo series, titled HAIRY, where she captures dogs’ transformation after grooming.
All of these dogs were groomed in a Japanese grooming style, different than the US in highlighting the cute looks of the dog and its special characteristics. These are not ordinary cuts, but works of art. The talented groomers from Healthy Spot in Los Angeles, CA took part in these cuts and made these pups look amazing for their photo shoot.
