My name is Andréanne Lupien and I’m 23 years old. I’m also known as Lupy and I live in Montreal, Quebec. I believe in fairy tales, happy endings, magic and cats.
I wanted to make a series of photos, but I didn’t know about what. I thought about it, and then came upon an old self-portrait with my cat that I made a few years ago. I had fun taking pictures of myself with my cat, putting it around me in the room so that the final picture would result in my cat being multiplied in the image, doing multiple actions. That was the inspiration for my subject… cat lovers and their cats.
We can see that the phenomenon of “cat lovers” gets bigger everyday, and cats are becoming more and more popular. Cat videos, pictures of cats, t-shirts with cats on them, coffee shops for cats, etc. This is my opportunity to add my bit to the trend.
It took me a little more than a year to complete the project. It was a great adventure! I would visit unknown people, or would go to a friends houses to photograph them.
For the love of photography. For the happiness of meeting new people. For the love of cats.
