2.She has a thing for… garage doors

Artist Agne Gintalaite first became interested in the ‘garage towns’ of her native Lithuania after she discovered one close to her local IKEA. Residential roads in her country are too small for cars, so these large sprawling carparks were built to accommodate them, but are often a bus ride away from the drivers’ homes. Her series, Beauty Remains is a collection of all the garage doors she has discovered on her explorations.

4. Cats of London, 1951

These beautiful pictures of London cats were taken from photojournalist, Thurston Hopkins’s very first photo essay for the magazine Picture Post, called Cats of London, published in 1951. It’s likely he met them while walking around the streets of London on other assignments – many lost their homes and owners during the Blitz so often made homes in the bombsites, living wild on the scraps they could find. There was no such thing as the catflap at that point, so even cats with good homes hung out on the streets when they were ‘put out for the night’.

Camera repairman, Sekar, lives in Chennai and cares for 4000 parakeets that live near his home each day, spending almost half of what he earns on looking after them! He took on this responsibility 10 years ago after a Tsunami when he noticed a pair of displaced green parakeets perched near his back porch. He immediately started to feed them with rice from his home, and the birds soon nested nearby and slowly – and then not so slowly – began to multiply.
