….as promised, here’s another excerpt from Natalya Smirnova’s intriguing images featuring her daughter Alex (see earlier post for links): this time with two related themes – the ones from the session seen above, even when the puss isn’t present – and two other shots featuring said puss from separate sets:

…..the cat is interestingly ugly/beautiful – a great challenge for a photographer – while Alex is always photogenic (even when clearly pissed off!!). The image I started with is a classic, often reposted and repinned: the two sets of piercing eyes and the contrast (detail and colour) between the cat’s wrinkles and Alex’s hair and bruised skin making it a mesmerising shot…..
