French photographer Mathias de Lattre traveled to Southern Europe to photograph Greyhounds and other hunting hounds who were tortured and discarded because they didn’t perform “well” for hunters in the previous season.
He said the animals were “rescued from hell.” Most had been abandoned by hunters and were starving, but some were tied to trees and abused or tortured until they were killed. Rather than show the dogs in those conditions, he decided to take beautiful portraits of the dogs who were rescued to show that they are so much more than just a tool for hunting.
