HOK #16 – Kate Green

HOK-kate-Green-2

Meet Kate Green.

“Even today when I say I’m going someplace, my mother worries. I travel all over the world in my work, and I have to remind her that it’s really because of her. When I was 16 years old I travelled with my parents through Nepal. One afternoon they couldn’t find me to go visiting some sight or other – this was in about 1984 – and they looked up and down the street in front of the guest house, and there I was playing with some local children on the street. It just seemed that I was destined to go back there to keep playing, and learning. It’s been 32 years since that first visit, and I’ve been back many times, but I still feel like I only know a tiny little piece of this amazing country.” Collected by Kate Settle

Humans of Kitchissippi is a special street photography project designed to introduce readers to some of the people who live, work, and play in Kitchissippi. Each instalment of HOK contains three elements: a photo, a name, and a quote from the subject that reveals a little bit about who they are. View our growing collection of humans right here.
