Cairns Photographer Nathan Kelly’s work to feature in Luka Bloom’s new book
Recently Cairns photographer Nathan Kelly was commissioned to shoot a number of portraits and live shows of Irish folk singer Luka Bloom during his Australian tour. Nathan’s Image is the background image for Luka Bloom’s entire website, which is pretty cool.
The images Kelly created for Bloom are to be used in an upcoming publication of his words and photographs called Homeplace
In the introduction Nathan even gets a special mention, Nathan says ” it is humbling when someone like Luka Bloom who I admire for what he does, thinks you are great at what you do…it makes me feel pretty good about my work….”
“I am not a photographer. I say this to differentiate between my snaps and the incredible work of
people like Giorgia Bertazzi, one of who’s photos appears here. Or Lieve Boussauw, who took the live
shot in Labadoux, Belgium in 2013. Or Nathan Kelly, who took the portrait in Byron Bay in March
2013. Technology has made it possible for a civilian like myself to express some love via a lens or
even a phone. And I am grateful that I can indulge myself in this way. But I am in awe of the art of the great photographer, and happy that I know a few.“
