They say that people and their pets start to look like each other after a while. But even if you don’t have a pet, your four-legged soulmate must be out there somewhere. With his latest project, animal photographer Gerrard Gethings proved it. He paired photos of cats he had photographed with their human lookalikes. The result is a hilarious, yet heartwarming series of photos that even turned into a memory game.
I love photographing animals in the studio, and I’m obviously not the only one. When actor and photographer Josell Mariano was asked to look after his friend’s cat, Jade, for whom an Instagram account has now been created, Mariano decided to go a little… “extra”.
With a full-on photo shoot, Mariano recreated a cheesy 80s style portrait session. Yes, with a cat. And the results are both hilarious and amazing.
I can hardly imagine anyone who doesn’t like funny photos of cats. We often give them human traits and make them seem like they’re doing human things. But photographer Harry Whittier Frees did it “before it was cool.” He dressed cats and posed them with props so it looked as if they were doing human things, and he photographed them like this over 100 years ago!
I have to admit, I’m not really a cat person. I prefer a different kind of four-legged animal. Cats and I just don’t get along. But visually, there is something intrinsically fascinating and beautiful about them. Especially, as photographer Andrius Burba discovered, when photographing them from underneath.
The Underlook project started several years ago when Andrius saw “a ridiculous looking picture on the Internet”. The photo was a cat sitting on a glass table, photographed from underneath. He decided to take it to the next level and photograph it properly. It’s now split off into separate Under-Dogs, Under-Cats and even Under-Bikes.
We’ve seen animals snatching cameras before. While penguins, chimps and polar bears took some selfies, this lioness decided to use a pricey camera as a toy for her cubs. It happened when wildlife photographer Barbara Jensen Vorster dropped her camera, and the big cat snatched it and give her little ones something to play with. Luckily, Vorster had a second camera, so she managed to capture the playful bunch dragging $2,600 worth of gear around.
Inspired by a random photo he saw online, photographer Andrius Burba decided to create a series of cats from underneath.
As a lover of both cats and photography, the recent International Cat Show held in Vilnius, Lithuania was the perfect opportunity for Andrius to execute his plan, and as you can see the results are pretty claw-some.
I’ve always had a bit of a love/hate thing with felines. I believe most of it probably boils down to there only be enough space for one narcissist in the room at a time.
But, it’s hard to fault the actions of the young, whether they be human or not, which was probably the thought by this photographer who had his personal bubble invaded by a furry hairball.
