Kate Bellm

Kate is an English photographer who splits her time between London, Berlin and the remote village of Deia in the mountains of Mallorca where she works from a self-built studio between the ocean and forest. Her pure and atmospheric photography seduces you into an otherworldly psychedelic paradise - with off-beat colour drenched landscapes, crazy cacti, hot hazy vistas, flickering palms and colossal rock forms; and her wildly beautiful nudes build intoxicating narratives that radiate a romantic and bohemian alchemy. She naturally empowers her subjects to feel free and full of courage in front of the camera, to own their flaws and go with the flow. This ability to put her subjects at ease builds a deep bond of trust that enables her to explore more risqué ideas and ignite deliciously exciting, often naked, escapades up mountains, through fields of wildflowers and into the mysterious unseen depths of the ocean. Kate’s organic philosophy also seeps into her surreal manipulation of the film itself, with dramatic and inventive use of lens filters, illustration, light leaks or even droplets of seawater to create her instantly recognisable deliriously dreamlike aesthetic.
