KAGE WEB / LINKS : www.kagecollective.com
Founded in 2012, the KAGE COLLECTIVE is a group of eight international photographers focussed on storytelling and documentary work. Its members—Patrick La Roque, Derek Clark, Robert Catto, Flemming Bo Jensen, Craig Litten, Bert Stephani, Vincent Baldensperger and Kevin Mullins—all share a common goal, to explore and revisit the boundaries of visual expression. From their statement of intent:
“This is not about forced reality. It is not about pure reportage without intent. It is about resolute interpretations of the moment. The eye as ghost and poet and translator. We believe in interaction without interference, in rogue infiltrations borne out of respect. The image as truth and as point of view. We vow to be shadows. We vow to search for light.”
