Cat Culture is a photography project and book exploring the places where people and cats connect, providing a glimpse into cat’s compelling personalities and the people who enjoy their company and charm. Over six months I visited cat cafes, cat sanctuaries, a cat museum, a luxury cat hotel, an office with residents cats, and an artist who loves to illustrate her feline companions.
Our connection with cats is far from a recent development; throughout history they have been depicted in art and literature worldwide as both playful and predatory, serving as symbols of both good and bad luck. Today, our fascination with cats continues. Spaces such as cat cafes allow people and cats to interact outside of the home, and social media gives us a new, digital outlet for our intrigue.
