About Mia (Mutt)
Mia was found as a 6 week old stray in Tennessee. She was taken to a shelter and flown to North Carolina by a volunteer. The pilot and his wife told us that Mia sat on her lap looking out the window of the plane the entire flight and they were interested in adopting her when she became available.
If dogs taught us anything, it’s to live in the moment. We slowed the moment down, shining a new light on rescue dogs. Each of these dogs has been rescued - Ziggy was shot (twice) and Tripper lost a leg - each has a story and has now found a home. Fellowship asked artist Carlo Van de Roer and his groundbreaking R&D studio Satellite Lab to create moving image portraits of this lucky pack, a collaboration to help save more dogs in need. Carlo makes use of his patented technology DynamicLight to capture each portrait in a sub-second decisive moment, which becomes explorable through moving light. This is accomplished using the world's fastest media camera and light sources moving at over five times the speed of sound.

About Best Friends Animal Society
Today, roughly five hundred dogs will be killed in our nation’s shelters just because they didn’t have safe places to call home. We’re committed to changing that. 100% of all sales (excl. platform fees) will be donated to Best Friends Animal Society to support their mission to make every shelter in the US no-kill by 2025.
