Beautiful Photography, Graceful Cats. 11 Feb. 2004
By Robert I. Hedges - Published on
Format: Hardcover
"Cats in Love" is the latest book of feline photography from noted cat photographer Hans Silvester. This large, colorful book is filled with beautifully composed photos of cats in the Greek Isles. Most of the photos are of one or two cats, though there are a few that have larger groups of cats.
The beauty of this book is in Sylvester's ability to convey feline temperament, mood, attitude, guile, poise, and grace in every frame. Most people who love cats admire their range of physical expressions of mood, from facial expressions to body language. Here Silvester captures all of the moods related to feline affection beautifully. The cats come across not so much as mere animals, but as loving, caring beings that have a wide range of emotions, which is of course one of many reasons that humans love cats so much.
Although it definitely is a part of feline affection, my only criticism of the book would be the inclusion of a couple of photographs of cats actually mating. I don't object to this out of prudishness, but that those photos tend to damage the mood of the rest of the book: going from love and sensuality to a more overt, biological look at the mechanics of feline reproduction, which is not what the book is really about. Fortunately there are only a couple of these examples, yet their presence is the sole reason that I didn't give this otherwise very worthy book five stars.
For a cat lover, or anyone who admires beautiful photography, this book would be hard to beat, and I highly recommend it.

Dignity, grace, beauty, emotional range, & sexuality of cats 18 May 2004
By Midwest Book Review - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Professional photographer Hans Silvester is passionate abut nature as evidenced in his acclaimed career as a travel photographer. Now with Cats In Love he turns his artist's eye to the subject of our feline companions in an impressive array of full color photography wonderfully capturing the images of cats against the dramatic backdrop of Greece. These are images reflecting the dignity, grace, beauty, emotional range, & sexuality of cats, individual and in tandem. Cats In Love is enthusiastically recommended for anyone who appreciates their feline companion, and for students of animal photography wanting to seek how it is done by a true master of the art.

Hans Silvester has a phenomenal ability to capture cats in their natural environment on film. He obviously has a great understanding of and empathy with these cats. This particular book candidly illustrates cats and their complex relationships with one another. If you love cats, you will love Cats in Love!
