A close look transforms even the most ordinary things into fascinating objects full of idiosyncracies and magic. With charming tongue-in-cheek, the photographer Pascale Weber shows this through a very special object: the cat tree. Photographed as a still life against a colored background, we see the multifaceted and sometimes frivolous architectural capers of this extraordinary type of structure. Weber depicts them with their four-legged owners proudly presenting their homes. A particularly subtle humor characterizes these aesthetic studio images. Readers may suddenly wonder how this unique variety of forms could have been overlooked until now. And everyone may smile and ask themselves where they themselves would prefer to live.
