This is Kate's latest work and launches at the Wirksworth festival on the 12th and 13th of September at The Northern Lights Cinema.

The photographs look at the imprints of people and their lives on a place, community and landscape. The imprints of Motherhood on the photographer and how that has changed Kate's way of seeing is also explored in the pictures.

'Imprints' is a visual story of some of the people of Wirksworth and It's surrounding hills, and Kate's response to their stories with her camera. Often in this series of images Kate used her iPhone to catch these fleeting images quickly and instinctively, 'Because it's small, familiar and not very threatening and always with me, apart from when my son's pinched it for 'Minecraft!'

'Imprints' opens on the Wirksworth Festival Trail weekend, 12th and 13th of September and will be on show at the Northern Lights Cinema until the beginning of October.

Signed copies of the book are available to order from the online shop for £15 inc p&p.
