New work - quick look

A quick look at some recent work. 

Made with Nakita - before I share the images I just want to add some words Nakita posted on her instagram account about working with me because I thought it was a pretty wonderful testimonial and so want to add it to my journal for longevity!’

@kerrycurl is one of the most fascinatingly creative people I’ve met…I adore her artistic nature and how she doesn’t just take a photo but creates a really cool image that brings you out of yourself and puts you somewhere else. Super talented woman” - @nakita_sparkles

New work - quick look

On this very rain Sunday I thought I’d share a couple of images from a recent photoshoot with model  Lindsay- Ann and Kathy - The Hair and Well Being Stylist.  Kathy has actually recently retrained as a hair stylist and is already adding to her qualifications. As someone who eventually managed to follow a creative career slightly later than what is commonly perceived as ‘normal’ (I was a 40 year old graduate…) these constant self evolving and development stories are always both intersting to me and inspiring.

The other thing which made this an intersting shoot as each woman is a different decade, Lindsay-Ann in her 30s, me in my 40s and Kathy in her 50s. I feel that there’s something quite powerful about women of different ages coming together to make and create. I’ll share a full journal post at some point but just wanted to give a quick look - the story so far.

Flashback - GFW17

During lockdown one I found an unscanned roll of film … and it turns out it was some shots from backstage at Graduate Fashion Week 2017. I’ve just scanned these and left all the dust on them - which for me fits my vibe anyway. I was working for a publication and shooting digital but managed to grab a couple of rolls of film along the way, so these really are snatched documented moments grabbed in between taking shots for the the platform I was working on.  Great to look back at these especially has Graduate Fashion Week has pivoted its approach due to the pandemic. 

I’m always interested in documenting events so if you’re looking for someone who will take a documentary approach then please do feel free to get in touch for a chat, to discuss commissions or general enquires etc.

Latest Interview

Fashion writer Ross Pollard very kindly invited me for a chat for his Linkedin series ‘5 minutes with’ series. I’ve added screenshots the interview below but please do also head over to his Linkedin article for a better look at the interview curated with images and a read of the series so far/follow to see who is next. Ross is really open in sharing his thoughts on the fashion industry, the good the bad and the ugly which makes him a really good person to follow in my opinion. Head over to instagram where you can find him on @fashionworked and @themrpollard 

Latest work

Celebrating creative women over 50.

I was invited to bring to life a concept created by The Hair and Wellbeing Stylist to create a series of images featuring and celebrating women over 50. Hair Stylist Kathy (aka The Hair and Wellbeing Stylist) has been creating events to bring older women together for the last few years which I’ve also photographed with a series of portraits so it was wonderful to be asked to develop this on location concept. 

Featuring Niki and Ali in front of the camera the shoot was also about highlighting the incredible location of Albion Nights, a truly beautiful destination close to Norwich where you stay in a beautiful little wooden house the middle of a meadow.

Also featuring in this shoot its Sue of The Mercerie , a designer who uses crochet and who also runs courses to pass on her skills so others can develop theirs.

New Work - Lalita’s Wardrobe

New work created for new fashion brand Lalita’s Wardrobe. The brand created by Lalita stems from her love of travel and her own heritage. Travelling as the pandemic began to take hold, Lalita cut short her latest adventures in India to return to the UK just as we went in to the first lockdown. Having sold fashions connected to her travels before Lalita decided to take the plunge and create a full brand and so despite Covid times Lalita’s Wardrobe was created. 

The brand works with makers and manufacturers in India with many items including second hand saris which are remade in to Kiminos and Bomber Jackets. Lalita also donates a percentage of her profits to a grass roots charity in India. You can read more about the brands ethos and take a look at the shop over on the the website.

Here’s a selection of images, it was a full on all day shoot. Things are taking longer working under covid restrictions and everyone worked so hard. I’ve linked to everyones instagram pages below.

Norwich Fringe Festival launches!

Today is THE day!

Norwich Fringe Festival 2021 launches today! Running from 18-21 March with a pay what you can approach the line up is full of theatre, visual arts, music and more. The team have worked so incredibly hard to bring this to life digitally. We’d all rather be viewing the work physically I know but this is where the world is still at and all the love and applause to the Fringe team for making this all come to life in such challenging times. 

On the plus side a digital event allows you to watch from anywhere in the world so come and see what’s happening over the next few days.

My part in this event has happened thanks to being granted funding by the Norwich Fringe Festival to create a new multimedia installation project for the 2021 event. An idea I had before thoughts of a pandemic existed have had to adapt and over come the challenges this last year has brought but I’m so happy to have been able to produce this new body of work.

My project The Disco: Room 2021 is now live! A a free digital exhibition, this solo show includes still images and video art work made with artist Amy Ollett.

A look at what you can expect once you enter the gallery - 

Huge thanks to the festival team and also to Sean Hancock and Morwenna Farrell who both helped me build the installation. AmySean and Morwenna are all amazing creatives and the links in their names will take you to their work. 

Morwenna also made a film of the installation which you can see on my instagram

Images of the installation to follow but in the mean time head over to the exhibition for a look around.

Podcast - Jo’s Art History

I was really excited to be invited on to the Jo’s Art History podcast. Tasked with the mission to chat about my favourite artist two came to mind but Tracey Emin won and whilst I am in no way an Emin expert I love her work and her ethos, her unapologetic ways of working is very inspiring and I’ve like her for many many years. It was great to be able to just chat to Jo about why and how  Emin’s work connects with me. 

The Podcast is really relaxed, Jo’s aim is for art to be for everyone not exclusive or elitist. So if that all sounds interesting or has at least made you a little curious do go and have a listen to the podcast here.

If 2020 has taught us anything its that discos can happen anywhere but are extra good in the kitchen. Have a great weekend, enjoy some music, dance even if its just to one track. Three minutes of movement to music is better than nothing at all.

New Work - Project - This is Not Nostalgia?

New work for my ongoing project ‘This is Not Nostalgia?’

In 2015 after years of wearing secondhand & vintage clothes I began creating ‘fashion’ imagery using preloved items to question why everything in fashion magazines was always ‘new’. Why the constant ‘buy buy buy’ message? What begun as an anti ‘fashion’ creative protest, a way to disrupt the status quo, grew in to a long-form project.

At first the concept of these shoots was to demonstrate that having a vintage influence does not mean that the images are not contemporary; curating influences from the past does not mean that the images themselves are “retro”. These style influences are all around us in the here and now, they are current.

As the project has developed, it’s led to opportunities for me to talk about sustainability & image-making. Continuing to questioning (push back) on what a ‘fashion image’ is. This approach now chimes with the increasing interest in the mainstream for sustainability in the fashion industry. There’s growing desire for sustainable fashion as consumers begin to ask where their clothes come from. Almost paradoxically, the consumer demand for sustainability imposes a commercial imperative on this most egalitarian of impulses. These are interesting times to be contributing to fashion media.

Andrew for Morwenna Farrell. 

Morwenna has a new collection launch coming up so needed some new imagery to promote it. I’ve worked with Morwenna several times now and after chatting to Morwenna about what her ideal plan B would be (Because a torrential rain forecast made it clear plan A would need to be reviewed…) I created some set design and plan B ended up working like a dream. 

I’ll share more from this shoot in another post but if you are in Norwich 23-25 Oct Morwenna has a pop up. You can also follow her over on instagram and Etsy.

I recently interviewed Morwenna for the Sans Pareil website so head over and read about her work and her sustainable approach to fashion and art. In the interview you can also see some of my photography from previous shoots.

News - AND 2020 Success

So happy to have this portrait of Matt Hales selected for AND 2020, an annual created by Then There Was Us. No physical exhibition sadly because it is 2020 and plans have to adapt but I’m so looking forward to seeing Matt in print.  We took this photo in London 2018.  Covid has us both back in Norfolk for a while, swapping the London parks for Norwich woodland and we actually just made some new work a couple of weeks ago. I’ve photographed Matt once a year since 2017, it wasn’t planned it’s just funny that’s the way it’s worked out. I should probably take a look back though them all and create a series.

About the AND 2020 project: Words from Then There Was Us 

AND 2020 is an annual selection of some of the best up and coming influential documentary and portrait photographers showcasing poignant and inspiring imagery from across the globe. Each year at Then There Was Us we strive to celebrate the outstanding work of those who are consistently creating unique and powerful stories, published in a beautifully printed annual. We’d like to say a huge thanks to everyone who took the time to submit their work this year.


I’ll share more updates as I have them. I’m beyond stoked to have my work in this annual along with so many exciting creatives. Head over to the Then There Was Us instagram for a full list of names and to follow their project.

Mad Girl’s Love Song 

by Sylvia Plath

I shut my eyes and all the world drops dead;

I lift my lids and all is born again.

(I think I made you up inside my head.)

The stars go waltzing out in blue and red;

And arbitrary blackness gallops in:

I shut my eyes and all the world drops dead.

I dreamed that you bewitched me in to bed

And sung me moon-struck, kissed me quite insane.
(I think I made you up inside my head.)
God topples from the sky, hells fires fade:

Exit seraphim and Satan’s men:

I shut my eyes and all the world drops dead.

I fancied you’d return the way you said,

But I grow old and forget your name.
(I think I made you up inside my head.)
I should have loved a thunderbird instead;

At least when spring comes they roar back again.

I shut my eyes and all the world drops dead.
(I think I made up up inside my head.)
