 深瀬昌久とその妻 洋子が1964年に埼玉県草加市の松原団地で始めた新生活に、家族の一員として加わったシールポイントのシャム猫 カボ。そしてその数年後に深瀬が釣りの帰りに拾ってきてしまった黒猫のヘボ。

Masahisa Fukase and his wife, Yoko, began their new married life moving in to Matsubara-danchi residential complex of Soka, Saitama in 1964. they were soon joined by a Siamese cat named Cabo. A few years later Fukase brought home a clumsy black cat that he had picked up on the way home from fishing- a cat which he named Hebo. From then on the couple lived their day-to-day life with these two cats.

This photo collection was made from the the few remaining vintage prints from that the time. The work is joined by another series of photos of a cat named Sasuke which Fukase had special affection for.
