Meet Elias Friedman, the Popular Instagrammer Behind "The Dogist"

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.

In this short profile from director E.J. McCleavey-Fisher, we get a chance to peek behind the scenes of Elias Friedman – The Dogist.

For more, follow The Dogist on Instagram or check out the hardcover photo book, available now on Amazon.
