    CHICAGO — The Humane Society of the United States' End Dogfighting in Chicago campaign sponsored a photography project in which members of the campaign's Pit Bull Training Team were given disposable cameras and asked to document a day in the life of their pit bull. The result was "Pit·ography," a 33-photo exhibition showcasing the beauty of the urban pit bull that took place at Chicago's Carroll Center.

    Anthony Pickett, a member of the PBTT and Pitography photographer, says his favorite photo in his collection is the one of his two-year old pit bull, "Nino," on his back: "I like it because it shows how loving and gentle he is."

    This event is part of the community outreach component of The Humane Society of the United States’ End Dogfighting in Chicago campaign. The program strikes at the core of urban dogfighting by using proven preventative methods such as youth anti-violence intervention, dog training classes, humane education, community outreach and law enforcement partnerships.
    "The beauty of 'Pit·ography' is that it portrays pit bulls in a new light," said Sandy DeLisle, End Dogfighting in Chicago campaign coordinator. "In this season of rebirth and renewal, this project shows us the pit bull is not a fighter, but a loving companion."
