9780815610267: The Photographed Cat: Picturing Close Human-Feline Ties 1900-1940

The Photographed Cat presents readers with an examination of how human-cat relationships are depicted in early twentieth-century photography. Examining this relationship from the perspective of the photographer and the human subjects who made or appear in these photographs, Arluke and Rolfe show that the cat photographs are valuable windows into sets of cultural values that may have existed at the time.

About the Author:

Arnold Arluke is professor of sociology and anthropology at Northeastern University. He is the author of numerous books on animal-human interactions including Beauty and the Beast: Human-Animal Relations Revealed in Real Photo Postcards, 1905–1935, coauthored with Robert Bogdan. Lauren Rolfe is a collector of early twentieth-century animal photographs.

Review:

An exploration of the close relationships between Americans and their cats, during a significant period for photography and modern undersandings of animals as pets. (Cat Fancy)

While on the surface, this book may appear
to be just a discussion of cat photos, it really
is telling the human story. The Photographed
Cat is a well-crafted book that will appeal
to a variety of audiences. (Editorial Staff Contemporary Sociology)

One comes away from The Photographed Cat with
an understanding of the evolution of human-animal
relationships and the realization that Americans have
long loved and pampered their pets, regarding them as
intimate friends and cherished family members. The
text of the book is well-written and insightful and
avoids sentimentality. The photographs are even more
spot-on and stunning. Those interested in animal sociology,
the American family, or early twentieth-century
photography will appreciate this book―as, of course,
will cat lovers. (Kathy Merlock Jackson, Virginia Wesleyan College Journal of American Culture)
