Hana Takeda’s first and little-known photobook. My Cat, That Cat is a beautiful study of wild street cats dwelling in roadsides, alleys and gardens. Takeda’s images separate the subject from the ‘cute’ domestic depictions we often see. Here Takeda emphasises the freedom of the cats with her natural and honest portraits.
