The law of attraction states “like attracts like.” This also applies to people and their pets. Often, humans and their animal companions share an uncanny resemblance. Sometimes it’s a deliberate choice, as the Paris Hilton’s of the world have proven, but usually it’s a subconscious decision. Even if man/woman and beast look nothing alike, shared personality traits are usually present. Hamburg-based photographer Tobias Lang (aka Mats Pitkå) has been studying people and their pets for some time. He snapped these delightful side-by-side portraits that reveal the subtleties of likeness in their relationships. Sometimes it’s a smile, posture, or even a hairstyle, but it’s clear why these humans and animals belong together.
