A Glimpse into Kate Bush's Hidden World

KATE BUSH

Kate Bush remains one of the most influential performers of the past century, and also one of its most enigmatic. The fact that she was able to achieve her iconic status while generally avoiding touring and press is a testament to how loudly her art speaks for itself. Bush's visuals were splendid, sumptuous, bizarro affairs, and in the golden age of the music video in the 1980s, they became inextricable from her songs, which have found inspiration in everything from Wuthering Heights and Ulysses to the number p. The British singer's output has become sporadic (just three full-lengths in the past two decades), but the new limited-edition book The Kate Inside (Wall of Sound Gallery) captures her on a winning streak. Featuring more than 300 rare images shot by Italian photographer and her longtime collaborator Guido Harari, it trails Bush from 1982 to 1993, when she released a string of avant-pop gems, including her masterpiece Hounds of Love (still a benchmark against which all concept albums can be measured). Fantastical and intimate, the collection peeks into the world of a reclusive genius at the height of her creative powers.
