About the Book

After photographing shelter volunteers in California for an entire year on his own dime, Jesse launched a Kickstarter campaign in 2015 to fund the creation of a book and support a cross-country expedition for the project. Kickstarter chose it as a 'Staff Pick' on it's first day live, the project went viral, the fundraising goal was exceeded and Lyons Press offered a book deal. 

The beautiful hardcover Finding Shelter book will be published by Lyons Press in April 2017, with proceeds going to all shelters involved. It features 100 black and white portraits of volunteers and shelter dogs across the country, as well as their heartwarming stories of love and survival. 

Book signing events and exhibits will follow the launch of the book in April 2017. Hope to see you on the road!
