Vienna-based artist Daniel Gebhart de Koekkoek has a way with cats. The former Magnum Photos associate captures snapshots of cats midjump. The wild-eyed and contorted house panthers earn their nickname, soaring through the air from steep heights. “I spent several weeks and months in secret private sessions with the cats until they started to trust me and let loose . . . So they felt free and started to act as they do all the time when nobody is watching. They started to dance and jump around and I was more than welcome to take their pictures,” the artist explained in an interview with ItsNiceThat.
