Born to Russian immigrant parents, Dolly Faibyshev is a New York-based, self-taught photographer that captures the campier side of contemporary culture. Dolly is a regular contributing photographer to the New York Times, The New Yorker, Vanity Fair, TIME, Le Monde, Rolling Stone, Businessweek, WIRED, and more. She was recently featured in a story on WIRED titled '23 Amazing Female Photographers You Should Know.'
Dolly Faibyshev approaches the subjects of the book--the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show and the American Kennel Club National Championship--with the same kinetic, fly-on-the-wall energy as street photographer Bill Cunningham was known for at New York Fashion Week. With a strong flash, vibrant color, and high shine, Faibyshev's photographs take on the feeling of a roving paparazzo, capturing less-often-seen candid moments of dogs and their owners in action across the event, from backstage primping, teeth cleaning, and ear scratching to the high-drama action of showtime and judging in the main ring. --Fast Company
