KATE By John Carder Bush
A unique collection of rare and unseen photographs of Kate Bush, taken by her brother, the photographer and writer John Carder Bush.
Little, Brown is pleased to announce the publication of KATE by John Carder Bush. Published on 22nd October 2015, hardback, price £40.00. KATE is a collection of beautiful images from throughout her career. It includes outtakes from classic album shoots and never- before-seen photographs from The Dreaming and Hounds of Love sessions, and rare candid studio shots and behind-the- scenes stills from video sets, including ‘Army Dreamers’ and ‘Running Up that Hill’.
These stunning images will be accompanied by two new essays by John Carder Bush: Inside the Rainbow, describing in vibrant detail their shared childhood and the early, whirlwind days of Kate’s career, and My Sister, My Sitter, which vividly evokes John’s experience of photographing his sister. He says: ‘For me, each of these images forms part of a golden thread that shoots through the visual tapestry of Kate’s remarkable career. Storytelling has always been the heartbeat of Kate’s body of work, and it has been a privilege to capture these photographic illustrations that accompany those magical tales’
KATE is a truly extraordinary insight into the life and career of one of our most influential and well-loved artists. Publication will be supported by an extensive publicity and marketing campaign.
