I must admit that I’m rather partial to a good photography exhibition, so when I heard about one in Paris dedicated to my favourite animal, I knew I had to go and see it.
The photos on display featured some seriously photogenic cats, and there was also a particularly good quote from the author Colette – “Time spent with a cat is never wasted”. Quite possibly the best statement ever made, in my opinion.
Aside from the photos of cats, there was a captivating film about Helmut Newton, and a display of photographs from his wife June, who used the pseudonym Alice Springs.
‘Le Chat et ses Photographes’ is on at Maison Européenne de la Photographie 5/7 Rue de Fourcy – 75004 Paris until 23 August 2015.
