The Cat Show
“The cat does not offer services. The cat offers itself.”
― William S. Burroughs: The Cat Inside
Some may think that snapshots of cats are only for the fleeting moment, that photographs of cute kitties and lone predators are only taken to bring a quick but passing smile to the face of the viewer. Others may cherish the photos of their pets for sentimental reasons but may not think that those images are of any interest to others. And then there is an army of feline devotees out there who flood every possible outlet with an overwhelming amount of cat photos and videos. Cats rule. So much so that sometimes the sheer quantity of feline imagery may make us forget what lies at the heart of this obsession: the quality that the cat offers by offering itself. The history of photography, however, teaches us that even the greatest masters considered cats a worthy subject for their camera. Brassaï, Henri Cartier-Bresson, André Kertész and Edward Weston, just to name a few of them, all had captivating photos of cats. The bar is set high, and contemporary photographers have been keeping the trend alive ever since, exploring new directions and new possibilities in the process.
PH21 Gallery invites photographers to submit their work for a group exhibition called The Cat Show. We are looking for submissions from all photographers who are interested in cat and feline photography and would like to share their work with a wider international audience through the exposure of PH21 Gallery. We welcome submissions in all photographic genres, and we are interested in all possible creative photographic interpretations of the theme.
