Animals have a very special place in my heart. And although my main work revolves around fine-art nature photography, a big part of it is focused on pets and animals in general.
Because street cats are a very common sight here, people accept their presence and often pass them by without much notice. So I try to give the felines the attention they deserve. I want to reveal their regal beauty and uniqueness. I want to share my awe and admiration towards them with others. After all, they are small-scaled tigers and lions walking among us.
A turning point occurred when my partner and I tried to rescue two newborn kittens that were found in a cardboard box out in the scorching July sun. They still had their umbilical cords attached, and the vet said right away their chances for survival were quite low. Still, we did our best. One of them passed the next day while the other fought for about a month. I documented the whole experience and it was as humbling as it was heartbreaking.
