Pictures of Animals Posing as Humans by Svetlana Valyiskaya

It’s often said that pets and their owners can start to look alike, but these adorable photographs take the old mantra to a new extreme. They are the work of Svetlana Valyiskaya, from St Petersburg, Russia, who snaps pets in everyday poses in her spare time from her job as a commercial photographer.

The vibrant costumes and scenes, which Svetlana designs herself, have made the photos a hit in her native Russia – and it’s not hard to see why.

She said: “I really love animals, they are loyal, faithful and true and always interesting to work with – plus they never criticise the photographs afterwards”.
