We recently had the opportunity of working with photographer Kate Orne.
She has spent the last decade photographing women, children, celebrities, men, models, and just about anything that captures her eye under the sun.
In her most recent work “May You Never Be Uncovered”, Kate depicts the lives of victims of the Pakistani sex trade industry, documenting their struggles in photos, using art as a connection to wider awareness in the outside world. This body of work examines the uneasy peace between Islamic fundamentalism and the profanity in the brothels. Repressive fundamentalist Muslim laws not only shun these women's existence but in some areas make their actions punishable by death. Kate’s purpose with this project is to raise awareness about this little known community, and to raise funds for the education of the children of the sex-workers, with the mission to break the cycle of children being born into prostitution, sex abuse, drug addiction and crime.
Kate has worked among the neediest people in the east using photography as a tool to fight against indentured slavery and for the wellbeing of women, children, and animals.
Born in Stockholm, Sweden, she is currently residing in New York City. Her work has been featured in such notable publications as The New Yorker, Vanity Fair, Esquire, Interview, Artnet.com, Arena, Vibe, Spin, Marie Claire, Dansk, Harpers Bazaar, Glamour, Tokion, +81, Dune among others.
