Topher Brophy is a New York-based Dog Dad artist who has gained international attention due to the socially conscious and wildly imaginative photos of him and his son, Rosenberg The Dog, in elaborate matching outfits.
Before he became a father, Topher had been going through a difficult time. He came to realize his emotional void was caused by a desire to care for someone else, which is when he adopted Rosenberg, who unknowingly, bore an uncanny physical resemblance to him.
Topher and Rosenberg have dedicated their newfound attention to spreading positive messages and promoting organizations that perpetuate compassion, tolerance, and sustainability. In partnership with their photographer and creative director, The Dog Styler, they are steadfastly dedicated to their art, and use it as a portal to uplift as many people as humanly possible.
