With the pandemic, isolation and exile, the Finnish photographer Sari Soininen sympathized with a gang of cats. She came across them a week before the first lockdown in Britain, at the bend of an alley in Bristol. With flashes and color filters, she built this fairytale-like series, which allowed her to escape a stressful reality.

Sara Soininen’s series of cats is not currently exhibited. On the other hand, the artist is at the Helsinki Photo Festival until 30 September, as well as at the Noorderlicht International Photo Festival until 28 November, with his series “Transcendent Country of the Mind”, in which there is a hallucinated dog, pigeons and fish.
