Martin Usborne: Recipient of the Humane Society of New York's Humane Medal 2018
June 29, 2018
The Humane Society of New York has awarded its 2018 Humane Medal to Martin Usborne for his outstanding service on behalf of animals. Usborne's deep concern for the abandoned and ravaged hunting dogs of Spain, the Galgos, has resulted in his extraordinary book, Where Huntings Dogs Rest (Kehrer Verlag, 2015). His portraits give his subjects the nobility and stature they deserve, while subtly exposing their cruel and inhuman treatment.
