“Launched in 2012, the KAGE collective is a photography project exploring the medium in all its forms, through member essays, thought pieces, articles, books and curation. Our focus on visual storytelling aims to encompass all genres, from pure documentary reportage to personal and impressionistic imagery, without pre-conceived notions or restrictions.”

So the KAGE collective describes itself. To me, this collective has created a visual storytelling paradise. Not only are the images amazing, the short stories, the written word, could keep my eyes, heart and mind busy for hours. This group of highly talented photographers documents life as they see it, as they want to share it – point of view as unshackled truths, life as we live it. This is visual storytelling at its purest.
Don’t take my word for it though. Get on over to the KAGE collective website and let your own eyes soak it all in. And just in case you need a little more convincing, get to know the collective in this short video. Believe me – you will be hooked after you see it.
