Snapping #petselfiez with @jermzlee & Norm

Since the advent of the digital camera, people have been snapping the one-handed self-portraits that the world has come to know as “selfies.”

As the popularity of the selfie has grown around the globe, it was only a matter of time before animals started getting in on the trend.

Enter Jeremy Veach (@jermzlee) and his adorable pug Norm. Norm snapped his first selfie a few months ago and posted it with a new #petselfiez tag, differentiating it from other selfies on Instagram. Says Jeremy, “my followers loved it so I kept it going!”

Since Norm’s first selfie, nearly 900 other animals have been inspired to share their own selfies with the #petselfiez hashtag.

Jeremy has some advice for humans that want to help their animals take the perfect selfie: “My best tip is to prop your pet up so one paw is on your leg while you hold the other paw towards your camera.”

"Our Instagram experience has been crazy and so much fun!" says Jeremy. Norm, himself, has become a bit of a celebrity in his hometown of Seattle. "I have been walking around the streets of Seattle and have had people recognize Norm and want a picture with him."

For more photos from Jeremy and Norm, follow @jermzlee on Instagram, and be sure to browse the #petselfiez hashtag to see selfies from animals around the world.

Love this

“When the whales at SeaWorld were played a sound recording of a group of whales made at sea, they all stopped moving in their tanks. Then one of them, Corky, began shaking violently. The tape was playing sounds of her family. “I have no idea if this creature shares any feelings that we know as humans, but her reaction reminded me of the times I heard messages from my own family when I was a hostage in Lebanon. I would feel great relief at knowing they were well, but also much sorrow and a sharpened longing to be reunited with them. “What is clear is that Corky could recognize her family’s sounds after years of separation…Knowing only this much I believe it is pointless and cruel to keep these animals apart for commercial reasons - to exploit them for commercial entertainment.” -John McCarthy, journalist

Boycott SeaWorld.

There is a documentary called Blackfish which if I am able to watch it will probably dissolve me to tears like The Cove did. I will NEVER go to Sea World

PHOTOGRAPHER TOURS SHELTERS TO HELP DOGS GET ADOPTED - Our mission is to provide shelter staff and volunteers with the resources to successfully groom and photograph shelter pets, helping give them the second chance they deserve.”

The One Picture Saves a Life initiative teaches animal shelters how to groom and photograph the shelter animals to present them in the best light (probably both literally and figuratively) for adoption. Photographer Seth Casteel is currently touring various shelters in the U.S. to put on workshops. You may be familiar with Casteel’s Underwater Dogs series. The photos above are examples of how different the dogs look depending on how they are presented.

In addition to Casteel, John Paul Pet, The Animal Rescue Site, GreaterGood.org, and the Petfinder Foundation are all partners in this endeavor. Click here to learn more about One Picture Saves a Life. You can also donate to this cause by clicking here. (Photos from One Picture Saves a Life)

I wish I could take pictures!!

Artist’s statement:

“What does a museum look like behind the scenes? How are exhibits stored when they are not on display?

The focus of this study is not on the exhibition spaces of the museum, but on the space behind the scenes, particularly depots, cellars, and storage rooms assigned to individual departments which are generally not accessible to the public.

These spaces are used for the storage of countless exhibits belonging to various collections, sorted following a rigidly scientific classification system, but also taking into account the limited storage space available.”
