Not nearly as dirty in actuality, considering the title, this is one of my favourite series of my own work. For the past two years I’ve visited Cyprus in June to stay with my aunt who resides there. Before I went last year she told me ‘There’s so many cats, you’ll love it but want to take them all home.’…

I didn’t quite believe her until I got there and saw for myself. Apparently years back, cats were brought on to the island to deal with a snake problem, and then consequently the cats turned in to a problem because nobody dealt with them, and of course they don’t get spayed and just multiply in number. Kittens galore.

Anyway, beside the point I started a series photographing the different stray cats I encountered on the few short days I stayed in Nicosia. The series is ongoing, as I’m likely to go back each year, but they’re my favourite things when I go. On this last short visit there are a whole bunch living in a beautiful cemetery and it’s just, I don’t even know the word, I fell in love with the place, if you were to be at peace that’s it, that was my place. Clearly the cats felt somewhat the same to make a home out of such an incredible place.
