The Dogs That Serve tells the story of the NYPD Transit Bureau Canine Unit through the use of beautiful images captured by Margaret Foxmoore. The exhibition is punctuated with articles written by the unit’s founding officers and those who currently serve and explores moments with the officers and their K9 partners photographed over the past six years. These are the teams that keep New York City, and the nation safer.

Margaret Foxmoore is a classically trained artist who picked up a camera one day and began photographing dogs.  Seeing dogs as living, breathing art, she began actively looking for opportunities to photograph dogs and found herself at the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show, Crufts, the National Dog Show, the AKC National Championship Dog Show, and more.  Her aim is not to document the posed, champion show dog shot, but rather to capture the relationships between dog and handler, intimate moments in the grooming areas, and the stories that blossom in more candid moments.  Foxmoore says she covers the 23 hours and 58 minutes when the dogs are not in the show ring.  Her motto: aim with love to capture joy.
