Finding Shelter is not a shelter dog project — it’s a people project,” says photographer Jesse Freidin about his new book. The artistic venture showcases shelter volunteers and the dogs they form bonds with in black and white photos. In particular, Jesse wanted to highlight the way that humans and canines who meet in shelters manage to support each other and heal together.
