Night Sky Rising: Cinematic photography series by Kate Bellm exhibited at Lamb Arts

When it comes to photography, it doesn't get much cooler than Kate Bellm. One of the UK’s most sought after photographers, she regularly shoots for brands and magazines including Vogue, GQ, i-D, Vice, Gucci, Ray Ban and ASOS.

Intimate and iridescent, raw and romantic, Kate’s first solo exhibition, Night Sky Rising, explores the wild beauty of nature through a surreal lens.

From idealistic landscapes to free-spirited nudes, each photograph tempts you deeper into Kate’s hypnotic perspective. At a time when the world is so rife with tension, the British-born photographer offers a sense of escapism that's steeped in the spirit of freedom, youth, and nature that is so often lost and overlooked.

Opening at Lamb Arts on 23 November, the exhibition comprises an eclectic mix of archival and new photographs and a series of sketches and notebooks.

She explains: "The most important feeling that I want to convey through my work right now is a sense of freedom and the ability to live with less and accomplish anything. My favourite piece in this show is of my husband Edgar skating down an ocean road in Mexico. To me it represents the feeling of true freedom that pushes me to keep travelling, meeting inspiring people, and continually testing myself. If nothing else… hopefully I can inspire that in others."

Kate Bellm's solo show runs until 13 January 2018 at Lamb Arts, London.
