German photographer, Julia Christe is at it again! This time she has the photographed the beautiful and hilarious ‘Flying Cats’ photo series. Christe created ‘Flying Dogs’ in 2007 and the second series of ‘Flying Dogs’ in 2011 and it was so successful, that ‘Flying Cats’ has been the next project, with the book having only been released three weeks ago.
Christe enjoys photographing dogs and cats because she loves that they have such a variety of expressions at their disposal. “I enjoy this particular work, especially when they express joy and happiness. Sometimes it’s also just downright funny” says Christe.
Christe hopes that people will find the series as fun as she does and that it shows some insight into how cats come in so many shapes and different characters.
However, while the majority of feedback has been overwhelmingly positive, some has been quite critical. “Some people thought we had used a trampoline or thrown the cats from a great height or even tortured them somehow. None of that is true! The cats are dropped from a very small height onto a foam mat. There is a making of the film which shows the photo shoot” says Christe.
Flying Dogs was published by Simon&Schuster in 2016 and Heyne Verlag in 2017 and Flying Cats has been published by Knesebeck just weeks ago.
Born in Tettnang, used to live in Berlin, still like to work in the studios of Berlin, live on the countryside in Wiendorf, close to the Baltic Sea.
