Hi, I’m Kate and I am so pleased you are here!
I am an Australian based photographer, but have had many opportunities to explore the world, so if you are abroad, let me know? I might be heading your way already.
I describe my collaborations as inquiries into the subtlety of movement in response to the surrounding environment. The works explore, sometimes through juxtaposition, the balance of delicacy and strength in both the dancer and the landscape. Investigating relationships between; the Dancer and the environment (space, shape, line, function), dancers to costume and to the self. The work is however inherently reliant, upon the viewers’ desires for poetics, strength and beauty.
In 2018, I was awarded an Arts Queensland Individuals Grant and it is with this, I attended creative residency at Ballet West, Salt Lake City, Utah.
My deepest gratitude goes to Adam Sklute and Sarah Taylor, whom without their trust this project would not have been possible. To the Artistic Staff of Ballet West and every Dancer at Ballet West for making me feel so welcome, in your home, thank you. To Sara, Joshua, Beau and the Marketing team, thank you, you all helped me bring this project to life. To Michael McCulloch and the Technical staff and David Heuvel my beautiful friends in the costume shop, thank you.
