La Isla may evoke a feeling of nostalgia for somewhere you have never been. Life on the rock seems different than life on the mainland. Here, in the middle of the Big Blue an alternative world is possible. Born out of a desire to depict the joy of exploring new places, Kate Bellm found herself at home instantaneously in Mallorca. She’s been exploring each corner of the island’s Balearic cliffs, surrounded by a group of friends that seem to have become a chosen family. Driven by her love for adventure, community and easy attitude, she has been capturing a sun-drenched journey all around the reef.
Kate’s work is an extension of her way of living. She is not an observer, she is fully part of the free-spirited scene that she photographs,taking part in every bit of the adventures she depicts. Free-diving with her girls in search of that underwater magic, climbing up the rocks to reach that impressive cave a few hundred meters above ground, building up floating fires on starry nights… La Isla is a book about listening to the call within to be free, more playful, more spontaneous, transcendental and raw. Take a deep breath and jump into “La Isla”, a remote world made of psychedelic skies, otherworldly desert plants, trippy escapes and intimate encounters under the sea
