For Cats Only / Nur für Katzen

A close look transforms even the most ordinary things into fascinating objects full of idiosyncracies and magic. With charming tongue-in-cheek, the photographer Pascale Weber shows this through the use of a very special object: the cat tree. Photographed as a still life against a colored background, we see the multifaceted and sometimes frivolous architectural capers of this extraordinary type of structure. Weber depicts them with their four-footed owners proudly presenting their homes. A particularly subtle humor characterizes these aesthetic studio images. Readers may suddenly wonder how this unique variety of forms could have been overlooked until now. And everyone may smile and ask themselves where they themselves would prefer to live.

PASCALE WEBER (*1985, Zurich) studied photo design at the School of Design in Berne and has made a name for herself with stylish still life photographs. Her pictures are frequently published in magazines, including Fräulein, Bolero, Faces, I Love You, Landliebe, Intersection and NZZ Stil. She was nominated for the vfg Award for her Katzenbäume series.
