Since time immemorial cats have been a special kind of independent, intelligent companions to us. Their autonomous spirit told us that human beings are not the center of their world even though we have conquered the blue planet. Cats are specialized lonely hunters, they don’t care what others think of them. They have a queenly attitude teaching us a very important lesson: they won’t obey if there is no reason to do so. We have to conquer their hearts before they let us be their companions. Their calm and precise contemplation of the surrounding world turns them into a kind of ideal hidden camera: they know us better than we can imagine. My cat series illuminate formally their playfulness, their dynamism and their many fold coat variations.
