Masayuki Oki is a Japanese photographer whose work seeks out the stray cats of Tokyo for an urban collection that captures the character of each animal.

His photography is different from other series that capture the Internet's favorite animals as he shows stray cats that are independent and seemingly more human as a result. As the animals aren't reliant on human interaction, Masayuki Oki's photos capture a sense of ingenuity as they sprawl over the concrete jungle without a care.

The stay cats in his photography are from the Shitamachi area of the city, however Masayuki Oki hopes to expand his lens of the rest of the country in the future in order to capture an even more diverse range of the felines. With over 55 thousand followers on his Instagram page, it seems that many hope for the same.
