Cats are ubiquitous in Greece's dazzling Cycladic Islands. Mykonos, Milos, Paros, Naxos and the other havens of legendary Mediterranean beauty are populated by cats of all types, sizes and colours. Living alongside the islanders, they are never allowed inside family homes, but are nonetheless welcomed as fellow inhabitants, rodent catchers and companions. Fed, cared for, but never pampered or tamed, they lead spontaneous, natural existences, whether sunning themselves, befriending fishermen, patrolling their territories or stalking their prey - part of the landscape, maintaining their wild autonomy whilst delighting and delighting in their human compatriots. The esteemed photographer Hans Silvester has devoted some three years to carefully tracking, observing and recording these charming creatures, penetrating their private world and capturing their attitudes in every situation and mood. The result is a celebration of a veritable paradise for cats. Born in Germany in 1938, Hans Silvester has toured the United States, Mexico, Egypt, Tunisia, Hungary, Italy and other locations throughout the world and has captured their scenic beauty in many photographic volumes.
