Catblogging in Jerusalem

Squeak (Photos: Dave Bender)

Awright, allayouse' catbloggers out there. Go take a looksee over here: Famous Cats of Jerusalem. They're selling pics from the photographic project they are doing on Jerusalem's street cats.

From the site:

The Famous Cats of Jerusalem is a photographic art piece by the collaborative art team Gordon & Gordon. From November 2005 through January 2006, we photographed 248 cats, and then distributed the photographs around the city for people to find.

We photographed the cats as we saw them. Some preened for the camera and followed us almost begging to be photographed again, while others were skittish and ran from the camera as soon as they heard the shutter click. The piece is the collection of one photo of each of the 248 cats, in order of appearance. They are numbered chronologically - we made no aesthetic decisions regarding the cats or their setting. They are all in there - beautiful, ugly, sweet, sickly, funny, garbage covered and urban pastoral.

We are dedicated to producing art in public spaces that is accessible and fun. You can help support us and our work by making a cash donation.
And then go visit Rachel's feline brood.

Anyway, Squeak and Noodles 'n' me say Shabbat Shalom, and have a great weekend.
