If the popular tumblr Dream Cats is anything to go by, feline friends are very à la mode at present. Perusing the work of London-based triple threat photographer, illustrator and graphic design student Boya Latumahina (who works under the pseudonym Zippora Lux), I too started to fall under the kitty spell – even though I am usually a dog person. Joining two of her favourite things – Hubble telescope photographs and cats – Latumahina has brilliantly presented kittens as celestial beings. To my mind, it’s a perfect match: the hypnotising mysticism of the constellations matches the strange beauty of the moggies.
In her final year at Central Saint Martins, Latumahina has plenty of other goodies to check out on her portfolio.
