Reversed Feline Portraits

Strays by Arne Svenson Showcases Backwards Cat Photography

— April 7, 2013 — Tech
Cute kitten videos and funny cat pictures flood the web because people just can't get enough of these adorable critters, yet in the 'Strays' cat photography project by Arne Svenson, the viewer is denied access to the feline faces they crave to see.

All of the cats in this photo series are turned around, facing a completely different direction than the camera, and as the artist statement explains, some are turned so far that it looks like their faces have been replaced with a head of fur. A green screen provides a wide range of bright and charismatic backgrounds to contrast with the cats and make it seem like they are lost in the patterned world behind them.

While most people can't get enough of cat photography, Arne Svenson changes up the game with backward-facing kitties.
Trend Themes
1. Backward-facing Animal Portraits - The trend of photographing animals in a way that subverts expectations encourages photographers to think outside the box.
2. Green Screen Photography - The trend of using green screens in photography opens up endless possibilities for creating immersive and fantastical images.
3. Abstract Photography - The trend of using abstract elements and patterns in photography challenges traditional ideas of portraiture.
Industry Implications
1. Pet Photography - Pet photographers can expand their services to include more creative and unconventional approaches to taking shots of animals.
2. Digital Media and Entertainment - The use of green screens in photography can be applied to video production, virtual reality experiences, and other forms of digital media and entertainment.
3. Art and Culture - Abstract photography challenges traditional ideas of portraiture and has the potential to significantly impact the art world and cultural norms surrounding photography.
