Many people see black cats as a sign of bad luck. This kind of taboo goes the same for Friday the 13th, your doppelgänger, mirror breaks, etc. Most of these claims are unproven and are illogical themselves.
That is the reason why Monika Malek started her project to prove that black cats are innocent. Her series consists of 13 shots. She shows pictures of black cats in different situations, in which they’re “not only as sweet kittens willing to play but also as conquerors and vultures.” In a nutshell, black cats are not any different from any other colored cats. They are, by no means, responsible for your bad luck.
