A Dutch photographer explores Hong Kong to snap images of his feline subject, Xu Haoyu reports.

Marcel Heijnen, a Dutch photographer, has been living in Hong Kong for almost six years. As a foreigner in China, he is always surprised, he says.

He walks out from his home near Sheung Wan, one of the city's oldest neighborhoods in its northwest, with a camera in hand, always prepared to capture the moments that touch him.

As a frequent visitor to a nearby traditional market and a daily shopper at grocery stores there, he is getting used to the noisy streets, where people bargain with vendors in Cantonese.

Through his lens, he has also captured cats in different moods there: in the stocky arms of a meat seller, staring at fish being eaten by a person, sitting on a box of dried abalones next to a porcelain cat and lying on their paws in a quiet corner.
