Info

When Dutch visual artist and photographer Marcel Heijnen moved to Hong Kong, he was immediately drawn to the fascinating culture of shop cats, and decided to capture the little feline emperors amongst their retail kingdoms. Sharing his shots of the loveable moggies on Instagram under the handle @ChineseWhiskers, the charming series soon grabbed the attention of the world - so much so it's now available in a book and pop-up exhibition at the Blue Lotus gallery, offering a fascinating insight into Hong Kong's traditional trades.
