I first came across Tou Chih-Kang on a yahoo head line. I was interested in the fact that Yahoo was featuring a photographer that was just photographing dogs. When I looked closer, I realized why they did. Tou is a Taiwanese photographer that photographer dogs in their last minutes of life. These dogs were to be put down later that day. In the article I read, he said that he wanted to bring awareness to the growning stray dog problem in Taiwan. He held an exhibition to showcase these photographs and show the world whats going on not only in his country, but countries all over the world.

I’ve included the link to an article from the Huffington Post
