Photos Cam Elkins
Kate has been documenting our journey since 2013 when we asked her to produce a short video for our crowdfunding campaign... within hours of the film being released we saw the word get out and the pledges come in hard and fast. Needless to say we could see this lady had a serious gift and lucky for us, she's been coming along for the adventure ever since.
Her commitment blew us away when days after having elbow surgery (after dropping her Mercury in the wet) was up a ladder with her camera capturing our new menu for pushy press deadlines.
Two films and hundreds of photographs later, Kate's work has fundamentally shaped our story, capturing our journey from my parents garage, through the pop-up til now. Her compassionate eye and love for documenting the human behind any story is what has helped capture and convert curious minds to the RSW community. She shoots as she sees it, with her bright, spacious and compassionate view of the world, we feel pretty fortunate she's part of the team.
Thanks to Cam from Stories of Bike for flipping the lens on Kate for a change.
RIGHT HEAR, RIGHT NOW
While sharing our space at the pop-up in 2014, Kate started a project called "Right hear, right now" that aims to lift the lid on deafness through her lens both as an artist and as someone living with a hearing loss. She is currently crowdfunding for her final show in Melbourne and the production of a book. Check out her video and join us in pledging your support.
