The Kitchen

Kerry Simmons // http://www.kerrysimmonsphotography.com

Kerry Simmons graduated with a BA (Hons) in Photographic Arts from the University of Westminster in 2004. Her photographic work centres on, although is not exclusive to, the genres of portraiture and urban landscape. The portraits are diverse in style and breakdown into three types, candid, studio and self. They investigate the complexities of gender, language and culture and how these influence interaction between the viewer and the subject. In her recent work, urban landscapes have become the dominant subject matter; they tackle vision, functionality and memory within an urban environment. They encourage the viewer to reconsider their everyday surroundings that are often construed as undesirable and unworthy of gaining visual pleasure from. While trying to answer the question and describe ‘what she does’ she cites Rut Blees Luxemburg and Stephen Shore as influences.
