People Posing With Their Cats More Than 100 Years Ago

Contrary to what the internet might have you believe, taking pictures of cats is not a new obsession. 

Since the dawn of photography, people with cameras have been aiming them at their pets who, though not always the most willing subjects, are usually most adorable.

Taking a trip through the archives proves that our collective love affair with cats goes way back and that those cuddling little creatures were as cute than as they are today.

A Beautiful Photo Series Captures The Relationships Between Dancers And Their Pups

Photographer duo, Kelly Pratt Kreidich and Ian Kreidich, have been specializing for years in photographing professional dancers. 

Then, a few years ago, they hit upon a new idea and started photographing the same dancers but this time, with their loving dogs. 

100 dogs and dancers later, their new photo series "Dancers & Dogs" is a full-length art book, available now for your viewing pleasure.

On their home page, the talented duo wrote: "One day, I (Kelly) had a strange idea: "What if we did pictures of dancers, with dogs." Ian looked at me like I was crazy. On paper, it was strange and didn't make sense. Why dancers and dogs? But I told Ian to just "Go with it." I had a vision. Our first duo was Ericka and Baxter, an English Bulldog, who belongs to a friend. We captured just the results we were hoping for – clean and elegant pictures, that are sweet, light-hearted and funny. Ballet is often seen as stuffy or unapproachable, and we feel like this project helps people see the lighter side of dancers. We have learned a lot during this process. We were not animal photographers when we started out! But along the way we have learned how to work on a dog's level, how to get dogs to do certain actions, what kind of dogs are even right for this project".

Cat-ographer Captures Candid Photos Of Cats Living In Working Places

While cats are usually considered less social, there are many curious kittens who prefer to be right in the middle of what a person is doing—no matter how inconvenient their presence may be. 

Italian Photographer, Marianna Zampieri, started capturing cats at work for her aptly-titled series C-AT WORK.

The talented photographer, who describes herself as Cat-ographer, takes documentary-style images (mostly in black and white) of cats in places of business and provides a fascinating look at how cats claim even the most uninviting workplaces as their own. From a salon to a library to a recording studio, these animals are seen lounging on the equipment or causing adorable distractions to their humans.

Zampieri was first attracted to the idea because it allowed her to see felines in "the most unusual environments… where we are not used to seeing them." My goal," Zampieri told My Modern Met, "is always to try to capture the beauty of a relationship between cats and people and demonstrate the great dignity and the incredible adaptability of these animals in any situation."
