Cats by Rob Bahou

Born in Amman , Jordan and currently based in Amsterdam we bring you the “Cats” series by Rob Bahou feauturing gorgeous portraits from several species of this beautiful felines. The complete series and other of Rob’s work is available at his website, Facebook or Instagram.

I’m currently working on animal photography, and I hope to get a book published in the near future. This particular project focuses on cats and dogs, but I’d love to expand to pandas and cheetahs, now that would make a great book. Why animals? Other than the fact that I grew up with them, and have a profound fascination with what goes on in their psyches, I believe that capturing a faithful, telling portrait of them is surprisingly easy. I don’t think that animals understand what a camera is, so when they look into a lens, they are not conscious of their appearance. As a result, they don’t adjust their expression, posture or body language, they just are what they are. With this formula, we are left with all the elements of a posed portrait, without the posed nature.
