So fascinated with this culture of shop cats, Heijnen couldn't resist photographing the feline fellows. He even created an Instagram account featuring the Chinese kitties and uploads new photos of them regularly. Shop cats, market cats, alley cats - he's captured them all! You can find his photos on Instagram or in his new book which will be launching at Blue Lotus Gallery in December together with his pop-up exhibition.
