About eight months ago I started an ongoing photo project "Girls and Their Cats" - a series of women photographed at home with their feline companions. My goal is to capture the sweet bond that exists between women and their furry friends and to also show cat ladies in a positive light.
I've photographed over 60 women so far with plans to photograph many more. Most of the women are based in NY (but I included some Oregon ladies when I was there in September). Eventually I would like to expand to different cities around the world. Right now it's primarily a Facebook and Instagram project, but eventually I'd like to turn it into a book.
Samantha and Franklin in Greenpoint.
Franklin was rescued as a kitten after they discovered him wandering the snow in Quebec. Samantha met Franklin while visiting Quebec and fell in love. She later arranged to have him flown to Brooklyn, where he now lives with Samantha and her husband.
