Born to Run: Athletes of the Iditarod

by photographer Albert Lewis

"I want to photograph the beauty, heart and soul of the dogs who run the 1000+ miles of the Iditarod dog sled race through Alaska."


Kelley Griffin's main leader, Bounty
 

"These animals are amazing athletes and they need to be recognized as such. I am hoping to publish a coffee table style book that will show through beautiful portraits the heart of these animals. This book will be for both the dog lover and the collector of fine art photography. I intend to publish prints and also travel with this exhibit to share the beauty of the dogs with people from other areas in the US and abroad, to show what it is to be a sled dog and run for 1000+ miles."

"There will be short notes on each dog and their wonderfully colorful names such as OmniStar, lead dog for DeeDee Jonrowe. This book will be for both the dog lover and the collector of fine art photography. I intend to publish prints and also travel with this exhibit to share the beauty of the dogs with people from other areas in the US and abroad, to show what it is to be a sled dog and run for 1000+ miles."

"I have visited over 30 kennels and traveled 4800 miles through Alaska and Canada in my photographic journey, 300 dogs and counting. I intend to publish more than 120 images into a beautiful over-sized coffee table book. Portions of the proceeds from this book will go to the Iditarod Vet Care foundation. I am looking for backing to help with the cost of travel and supplies through my Kickstarter page at http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/960015332/help-fund-my-book-born-to-run-athletes-of-the-idit


   

How many times have you looked at the fabulous canine athletes of Iditarod and murmured to yourself these dogs are gorgeous!  I must admit I have, many, many times.  Of course I tell my own huskies that all the time, too!

With photos like this Albert's book-in-progress will showcase their beauty in a coffee table format book for others to appreciate!
