Perfect Imperfection, Australian Photographer Captures the Elegant Resilience of Disabled Dogs

For her photo series and book “Perfect Imperfection”, award-winning Australian photographer Alex Cearns (previously) has captured the elegant resilience and sweet spirit of dogs who were born disfigured and/or with disabilities. What shines through in each of these photos is not what makes these dogs different, but rather the shared joy of life itself.

In this inspiring portrayal of difference, Alex captures the intrinsic beauty and spirit; the sweetness, resilience and strength of 60 perfectly imperfect dogs. They adapt to their unique bodies without complaint, they survive with determination and they live with joy. The bond between these endearing doggos and their humans shines through – and sometimes they even save each other.
