Fight Against Maturity


Upon their first exhibitions, some artists can’t wait to elaborate on the intent of their work. Others are aloof, projecting an enigmatic presence.

For this Seattle cat, photography is his medium, a gift from his “parents” — filmmakers Michael and Deirdre Cross, who gave him a very small and light digital camera that hung from his collar one day a week for a year. It was programmed to take a picture every two minutes.

They wanted the answer to a question many pet lovers have asked themselves: What does he do all day?

He came back with thousands of answers — 16 of which are framed and on display at the Urban Light Studios in the Greenwood Collective.

  1. Thank you for the post about Cooper’s exhibit! My husband told me in October last year that he had an idea for an exhibit at our new gallery and showed me Cooper’s blog… he called Cooper’s parents and here we are hosting his first photo exhibition – the photos are beautiful – and he’s a cat! Shameless plug… purchase custom matte, framed and “paw-tographed” prints at http://www.urbanlighstudios.com/cooper
