When I first heard about photographer Andrius Burba’s Under-Cats project, I lost my mind. Unless you’re spending time laying under your coffee table watching your cats walk by (which seems pervy somehow), this is an angle from which we rarely seen felines.
Burba set up a photography area at the International Cat Show in Vilnius, Lithuania, and the results are oddly spectacular! And after the success of this first project, he started creeping around under all kinds of animals, including dogs, rabbits, and horses. HORSES. Standing on glass. Yipe!
“I knew that all I needed is to get 600 kg horse on a glass, dig 3 meters into the ground, put my camera under a big glass and take a shot. Even though it was the same concept as project “Under-Cats” it took two months to organize it all. I have found horse-friendly environment and even made rubber horse shoes, to save the glass from scratching.”
Amazing. And aren’t you proud of me that I resisted making Catherine the Great jokes?

The making-of Under-Cats video is pretty fun, too!
