Kerry Curl is a UK based award winning photographic artist working with photography, video art and installation. Intuitive and open to experimentation, Kerry's work fuses genres as she works at the intersection of portraiture, fashion and documentary, exploring the lines between the boundaries. 

Her practice frequently draws on the influence of the past in today’s world to question the idea of nostalgia, sustainability, consumerism. Vintage and secondhand clothing have long been a feature which is used and reused within her work. Creating visual responses to history and its prominence in the now, she adopts a multi-disciplinary approach to her practice, utilising her skills in art direction, styling and set design. 

Her achievements include being awarded winning image status in the British Journal of Photography’s Portrait of Britain in 2017 and 2019,  a finalist in the Graduate Fashion Week Fashion Photography Award 2017 and finalist in the AOP Student Photographer award 2017. Kerry was granted funding to create a new multimedia installation project for the Norwich Fringe Festival 2021, completed a research and development artist residency at the Norwich Shoe Factory and was invited to show work from her 'This is Not Nostalgia?' project at the Norwich Science Festival Hello Future Fashion exhibition. In 2023 she reached the long-list of The Taylor Wessing Portrait Photographic Prize.
