Amor is a culmination of moments of Kate Bellm's trips and travels over the last 10 years. Friends and lovers dreaming, escaping, kissing, and skateboarding. Kate's pure and atmospheric photography seduces you into an otherworldly psychedelic paradise-with offbeat colorful landscapes, crazy cacti, hot hazy vistas, flickering palms, and colossal rock forms. Her wildly beautiful nudes build intoxicating narratives that radiate a romantic and bohemian alchemy. Like a young female Helmut Newton, Kate portrays femininity with fascination, aligning elegance, sexuality, and female empowerment. In friends and lovers, Kate finds her models and muses-this allows her to work with a sense of spontaneity and ease which takes on the charm of youthful freedom. Each image takes you on a new sun drenched road trip or adventure.
