Art & Design | Marlowe by Cindy Hughes

Cat pictures, people. They make the world wide web go round.

This one of shelter kitty Marlowe is part of a project that captures the beautiful, quirky faces of animals in need of homes. When they’re willing to sit for the camera, that is. “We have a lot of photos of cats running away from us,” said Lisa Brideau, the volunteer who started the project. Her hope? That potential adopters will fall in love with the photogenic faces.

If you’re a photographer who wants to get involved, contact Lisa. And if you want to adopt one of the featured animals, contact the shelters. Who wouldn’t want to wake up every morning to a face like this?

    This is fantastic. Having a good picture of a pet in a shelter is really important – I learned this from my friend who runs a dog rescue, and so many of these less-good shelters just take a lousy picture of the dog, and he or she will look mean or terrified or anonymous, and then they don’t wind up being adopted. In some of these places, not being adopted is a death sentence, so good photos really can save lives.

    Isn’t it brilliant! I love, love, love this project. (And so does my own little shelter kitty.)
