Kate Potter Portraits

This series of portraits by British photographer Kate Potter is so refreshing. Myself especially, as an avid seeker of cute cat photos, takes for granted the magnificence of a cat. They really are such oddly beautiful looking little creatures and to see them staring at you straight on and framed so simply really makes you reevaluate the species.
When you think about it, animal portraiture is a largely unexplored area of photography. I see Potter's portraits, and I see human like characteristics in these cats most likely because what I associate with the particular poses and format is human NOT cat. It's amazing the effect they have isn't it? 
Think about it.
