Steve Walker print fundraiser
We are devasted at the news of the death of a dear friend Steve Walker. Steve suffered a catastrophic cancer diagnosis and was dead within 6 weeks. He died 12 days after his daughter, Reign was born, induced so that he could meet her. He also had a beautiful son, 20 month old Beau who is best friends with our own little boy, born only a month apart.
Steve was a wonderufl human, a fantastic brother, cousin, son, friend, husband and most of all a father to his two little babies.
His family and friends are in complete shock at his sudden death and we are trying to raise money for his partner Tiello and his children. Nothing could ever compare to Steve, though much needed cash will help the family find a way forward.
These prints are availble as singles, though I have curated them to be shown as a triptych, encouraging you to buy them all. A flat $30 shipping fee will be applied to all orders, though if you are able to collect, then please notify me, the shipping fee will also be donated to the family.
There is a watermark on the images bearing Beau and Reigns names, to remind you of them, to remind you to spend the time with your loved ones and to remind you to live your life to the fullest in honour of Steve and his family.
If you just want to donate then we have a go fund me campaign set up which can be found here.
These images were taken in Steve’s final days. I was in Mexico waiting for news of his treatment. I felt sad, unable to help and far away from friends and family. I did the thing I know best which is to take photographs. I was trying to concentrate on photographing whales but my eye kept on focussing on the huge powerful waves that were pounding the shoreline in front of me. I shot these images thinking about Steve and his wonderful family, all the good times we spent together and also reflecting on my own little family and how important loved ones are. These images are meant to be a tribute to Steve, but also a reminder to us all that we have. a duty to live life to the fullest and spend as much time with our closest as possible
