For their Animalia issue Topic is showcasing a selection of James Mollison’s Tokyo Owl Cafe Portraits.
From Topic’s article: ‘In Tokyo, you can sit down with the animal of your choice—whether you prefer cats, dogs, rabbits, or snakes—for a quick coffee and a nuzzle at a specialized animal café. There are also at least eight owl cafés in the city. When photographer James Mollison visited Pakuchi Bar 8889, in the Takadanobaba neighborhood, last March, he encountered owls of various shapes and sizes, all named after the owner’s favorite musicians and bands. This includes Beck, a snowy owl; Cure, a western screech owl; and Marilyn Manson, a southern boobook owl.’
