I managed to capture these two at rest the other day. This is my husband and cat, Tim and Charley. They’ve been good friends for a long time now.
James submitted these photos of himself & his cat Noodles to the Men and Cats Facebook Group. Love the triptych!
“Rocky and I live in Montgomery, Alabama. He and I go on walks twice a day. During times when I feel it’s time to go indoors, I carry Rocky. Rocky sometimes doesn’t want to be held anymore so he will sit on my shoulder until he can jump onto a ledge close to the door. I’m amazed the selfie worked!”
Menandcats.com recently stumbled across the work of photographer David Williams, who has an entire series of beautiful portraits of men and their cats. I was shocked that I hadn’t seen his work before, since we have very similar projects with similar goals behind them. I reached out to David for an interview, and he was kind enough to answer my questions. Please check out David’s website and Instagram and support it in any way you can!
First of all, do you have a cat or cats?
DW: My girlfriend and I have one cat named Margot. We rescued her after Hurricane Sandy hit New York.
How do you find the people in your series?
Do you show your work only on your website, or do you have gallery shows? Do you sell prints of your photos?
