Dag Knudsen started exploring symmetry as an effect in his photographic works a decade ago. The first “symmetricat” was photographed five years on in 2012. It was most recently in 2016, that Knudsen shot a editorial for a magazine based in New York city where he used a Sphynx cat as a collaborative model. In the wake of this series, he went on to shoot various different takes with other hairless felines on colorful backdrops. Adding a different perspective, albeit by obscuring, Knudsen seeks to reveal a subjective experience of the divine heralding to the ancients who also worshiped feline animal as a divine being.
