“He had an intriguing face”

Award-winning Getty Images photojournalist Chris Furlong covers hard news, politics and social issues. And cats — lots of cats – if only because of the Supreme Championship Cat Show.

“He had an intriguing face,” Furlong said of Pickaboo, a Blue Eyed White Sphinx waiting to be judged. “He was being held by his owner, so I decided to concentrate on his face.”


“I was expecting to find the stereotypical ‘crazy cat lady,’ but there weren’t any,” Furlong said. “There were just normal, animal-loving people.”


“I approached this the same way as I would any other assignment,” Furlong said. “Keep an open eye and photograph what I see.”
