  • 'I wonder if any other photographer in the world has photographed as many cat yawns as I have.'
    —Masahisa Fukase
    After Masahisa Fusake’s 10-day-old kitten Sasuke disappeared, he welcomed a stray cat brought to him by a stranger in response to his nearly 100 lost-cat notices posted around his neighbourhood. Shot during the same time as his ominous Ravens series, Sasuke!! My Dear Cat – featuring his second Sasuke – is a playful series that captures the essence of his beloved cat.
