The Return of the Shop Cats: Photographer Marcel Heijnen’s New Book and Exhibit

Why We Recommend it

Market Cats is photographer Marcel Heijnen’s latest exhibit, following on from the widespread attention and success of his last show, Shop Cats.


Dutch photographer Heijnen started snapping Hong Kong’s shop cats in 2015, gathering an endearing collection of images that also reflects the curious and creative set ups that are the city’s small businesses.

Part two in Heijnen’s project features the city’s market cats, shot in arresting detail that helps paint a picture of life for Hong Kong’s hardened, but not unloved rat catchers.
