By Marcel Heijnen
Hong Kong’s shop cats are the little emperors of their retail kingdoms. When photographer Marcel Heijnen moved to the city he was immediately drawn to these photogenic mouse-catchers, and this series is the charming result and has been taking the world by storm.
While the cats are undoubtedly the furry celebrities of his photographs, each shot delivers an insightful context to Hong Kong’s busy trades. From dried fish and rice to paper offerings, the shots’ backgrounds present local culture in all its cramped and colourful chaos.
These postcards were created following the popularity of Marcel's two photo books, Hong Kong Shop Cats & Hong Kong Market Cats.
