Greyhound photography exhibition

March 6th, 2014
GAP Exhibition

Greyhound Racing Victoria’s Greyhound Adoption Program (GAP) and renowned photographer Josh Robenstone have teamed up to open the Every Greyhound Has a Story photography exhibition.

The free exhibition, to be held between 14 and 20 March at 524 Flinders Gallery, showcases the unique stories of adopted greyhounds and their owners.

“Because adopted greyhounds have come from the racing industry, they all have a unique story,” says Robenstone. “Some might have been champions, others might never have been quick enough to race, but they all have their own set of experiences and it’s intriguing to see how that shapes the bond with their adopters.”

GAP manager, Larissa Darragh, said that hundreds of greyhounds found homes through the program last year, with staff and volunteers working to find greyhounds to match various adopters’ personalities.

“Greyhounds make fantastic pets – they are quiet, lazy and gentle animals that thrive in the home environment,” says Darragh.

“Since 1996, GAP has re-homed more than 4500 greyhounds and we are hoping that initiatives such as this exhibition highlight how wonderful greyhounds are as pets to more potential adopters.”
