Andy Prokh was an economist by profession, but was always drawn to photography.  When he began shooting professionally, the Russian photographer found his favorite subjects were his daughter Catherine and their British shorthair cat, Lilu.

The black-and-white images presented a relationship that seemed more like that of a pair of siblings rather than one of owner and pet.  “They’ve lived their whole lives together,” said Prokh. “I like to take photos of them because I love them both.”
