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."
