Kerry’s vision was influenced by several years of travelling, finally settling on London as her home. She studied at London College of Printing, now part of University of the Arts, and began working in documentary and landscape photography.
Her initial body of work and first solo exhibition “The Emptiness of a Land with no Fences” was shown at the Muse Gallery London, showcasing a series of images taken in Mongolia. The work went on to be shown as part of a “Winter notes on Summer impressions” at the Six Degrees Gallery London, and then also shown at The Front View Gallery.
Since her first visit in 2005 Kerry has returned to Mongolia on several occasions, in 2015 to direct a short film documenting the ‘Fair’ cashmere project, which supports the livelihoods of nomadic herding communities in remote regions of The Gobi desert.
Her recent body of work ‘Observations and Orchestrations’ was shot over the last five years, which was nominated for the prestigious Hyères Festival Grand Prix 2019, and has been exhibited internationally. In 2021 work from the series will be published and exhibited.
Moving into exploring fashion, she became interested in bridging the gap between fashion and her exhibition work, which led her to work on a number of projects that highlight the need for greater social and environmental awareness in the fashion industry.
Kerry’s work is often shot in the lonely isolation of remote locations, where both her subjects and her distinct use of colour, texture and light, oscilate between belonging and incongruity.
