en Limba Engleză Hardback – 15 Nov 2016
Jane Bown is a legendary Observer photographer best-known for her portraits of icons from Samuel Beckett to Björk. This is a charming collection of 100 black-and-white pictures of felines that reveals the same sympathetic eye and wit as her portraits. She captures the cats sprawling, prowling, lolling, playing, feeding and lounging. House cats, alley cats, show cats and kittens trip and gambol across these pages making this the perfect photographic treat for cat-lovers.
Jane Bown began working at the Observer in 1949. Bown's great mantra was, 'photographers should neither be seen nor heard.' An ideal shoot was one where she exposed no more than a roll-and-a-half of film. She was made an MBE in 1985, a CBE in 1995. She died in December 2014.
