30+ Inspiring Photos by Walter Chandoha, the King of Cat Photography

“Time spent with cats is never wasted,” Sigmund Freud once said. Today, to share another dose of inspiration, we’d like to introduce you a person who had been proving that Freud’s point through the lens of his camera: meet Walter George Chandoha (1920-2019), a famous master of cat photography. He also was successful in shooting other animals, fruits, vegetables, flowers, and New York City street scenes but cats seemed to be the biggest passion of his professional and creative life. His archive grew to more than 225,000 photographs, with about 90,000 shots of cats among them. Walter Chandoha is often mentioned as the guy who made cat photos viral much before the era of memes.

In this post, we’ve picked up some gems of his cat shots from around the web as well as backstage shots for you to get impressed and inspired.
