Walter Chandoha (1920-2019) was a combat photographer in the Second World War, before a chance encounter with a cat led him on a path that would shape his professional career. He is regarded as the world's greatest domestic animal photographer with a career spanning over seven decades and an archive of more than 200,000 photographs. His photographs have appeared on over 300 magazine covers, thousands of advertisements, and were regularly featured in magazines such as Life, Look, and their equivalents around the world.

Reviews

"...the purr-fect gift for cat fans."
"His legacy is more than assured--Chandoha literally wrote the book on his field."
"A joy of a book."
"Far from a kitschy cuteness overload, the new book is a celebration of Chandoha's long, prolific career, his skill as a photographer, and yes, all things cats."
"The unknowable, endlessly fascinating character of cats remains, captured better by Chandoha than anyone before or since."
"Chandoha's esteemed career set a standard for the generations of feline photographers that followed."
