Kate has collaborated with the National Portrait Gallery as a Creative Connections artist. Clients and publications include FedEx / Airbnb / OpenTable / TENA / JUUL / Oxfam / FT Weekend / Guardian Weekend / TIME / Telegraph Magazine / Marie Claire /Wired A selection of Kate’s portraits form part of the permanent collection at the National Portrait gallery, London.

  • Reclaim
    Reclaim‘It’s me claiming me back from cancer, my way. Not the consultant’s way, not the plastic surgeons way. My way.’ Explains Elaine on her decision to get a mastectomy tattoo We spoke and photographed many women on their journeys after Cancer. Exhibited here are Elaine, Jill, Sarah G and Kerry. Each of the women has had their own unique conflict with cancer, but all found power and new lease of life through body art. We all wear our scars as living proof of what we have experienced and overcome.

  • Equal Lens: meet 100 women photographers
    Equal Lens: meet 100 women photographersAn equal shot for women photographers After looking through the books of over 70 leading commercial photography agents, we found that women accounted for less than 25% of those represented. This isn’t because of a lack of talent, or a lack of desire from agents, creative agencies or clients. It’s a structural problem that must be addressed with big collective actions, such as an industry-wide commitment to always include women photographers on the lists that clients and agencies select from.
