This Former Sanitation Worker is Photographing Brooklyn's Adorable Feral Cats

Brooklyn based former Department of Sanitation worker and photographer Elijah Hurwitz spent 18 months on a photography project called Feral Friends where he captured photographs of hundreds of wild cats living in Sunset Park.

As he photographed the cats at dusk, boats would blow their horns on the water, and dump trucks dropped off steaming hauls. The scent could be gnarly. “A block away, you would know where you were,” Hurwitz recalls. And with dozens of cats chowing down nearby, he adds, “in some ways, it was like a giant litterbox.”
