Found in the Archives: Celebrities Posing with Jack’s Studio Cat Nik

Jack took pity on a stray cat and took it in, naming it ‘Nik’ (for Nikon, one of his favorite 35mm camera brands). Nik lived in the studio and became a kind of mascot. Nik was very comfortable around strangers and so there are many photographs of celebrities holding and posing with Nik! Here are just a few examples.
