Kerry Curl is a UK based award winning photographic artist working with photography, and exploring moving image and installation. Kerry works at the intersection of portraiture, fashion and documentary, questioning the blurred lines between these boundaries.

Her practice frequently draws on the influence of the past in today’s world to question the idea of nostalgia, sustainability and consumerism. A firm believer in creativity with purpose, she is a long term fan of vintage and secondhand clothing and has long been creating imagery using these items within her work.

A list of selected exhibitions, awards, publications and interviews can be seen below.  

Kerry is available for commissions and assignments. For enquiries, prints requests or anything else please contact hello@kerrycurl.com
