Local photographer and dog lover Elias Weiss Friedman has an amazing Instagram account called The Dogist, an online photo-documentary series about the beauty of dogs. While not explicitly stating NYC only, nearly all of the posts have been about local dogs and includes a brief introduction about them, similar in style to the widely popular Humans of New York series.
The Dogist currently has over 2.3 million followers on Instagram, and even has a hardcover photo book out highlighting some of his best shots.
The Dogist is a beautiful, funny, and inspiring tribute to the beloved dogs in our lives. Every page presents dog portraits that command our attention. Whether because of the look in a dog’s eyes, its innate beauty, or even the clothes its owner has dressed it in, the photos will make you ooh and aah, laugh, and fall in love. Photographed by Elias Weiss Friedman, aka The Dogist, every portrait in the book tells a story and explores the dog’s distinct character and spirit. Themed sections include Puppies, Cones of Shame, Working Dogs, and Dogs in Fancy Outfits, giving every dog lover something to pore over.
