Photographer Places Giant Cats In Photos With Himself And It's Something Out Of A Ghibli Movie

You can say that the artist, Petechka Odnobokov (Peter, for short), is larger than life! Peter places these images of giant cats (who you may have seen circulating the interwebs) in urban, and not so urban landscapes. A man with glasses and a beard is also present in each and every photo, this is Peter himself! 

Peter is always looking at ease and relaxed in the pics as the giant felines roam about (or nap about). Peter writes under one of the photos, a photo with cats is a peculiar way of communicating with the world around him. This allows you to draw a bridge between his total isolation from childhood and the outside world with other people.

The world he has created is certainly better than our reality!
