It's hard to put Cooper's work in a simple category. Is it art? Or is it simply a technological trick that has been exploited here to great effect? I'd argue that it's the former but he has his detractors. In all fairness most of them are crazy and their opinions should be discounted out of hand.
This book written in collaboration with his longtime companions Deirdre and Michael Cross and is a great way to experience both his work and his more personal, less public side.
We get to see him as a begs for food at his day job, (cat), and then goes and enjoys private time in the yard or in the neighbors yard. In one memorable image we get a glimpse of yearning from a local dog. Their relationship clearly one of stalemate as the dog is locked inside and can only stare through a window with a slightly deranged longing at Cooper. The imagination wonders what are they thinking?
I can't recommend "Cooper: Photographer Cat" strongly enough. If you love cats or you just love celebrity you get to see him in both roles. As an artist burdened with keeping up appearances and as the cat that he is, a little aloof but always up for an adventure.
Buy this book!
Truly this is a work of genius that should be kept as a well thumbed reference book in every street photog's bag.
Coop has added excitement to the `hood, and although we've had to protect turf a few times, we've also shared a few quiet moments on each other's decks. He hasn't let fame go to his head. He's a cool cat!

the book is rather like a collection of impressionist paintings, which I suppose it's meant to be. Interesting concept and who doesn't love a happy kittehPublished on March 27, 2014 by Tami
