Kerry Herschell is a devoted portrait photographer and videographer, a journey fuelled by an unwavering passion for capturing the essence of life through visual storytelling. Her adventure in the realm of visual arts began at Photography Studies College in Melbourne, where she honed her technical skills and developed a keen eye for composition. This educational foundation provided the tools to express her creativity and explore unconventional avenues within the field.

Kerry’s fascination with alternative print processing emerged as a natural extension of her desire to push artistic boundaries. Venturing beyond traditional methods, Kerry delved into the enchanting world of cyanotype printing. The unique and ethereal blue tones produced by this historic photographic technique captivated, prompting a deep exploration into its intricacies. This journey has led Kerry to experiment with gum prints, adding a tactile and painterly dimension to her visual narratives that are just developing.

Inspiration for Kerry’s work springs from the diverse tapestry of people and places encountered around the world. Travel has become an integral part of the creative process, allowing each locale and each individual she meets to become a source of inspiration that shapes Kerry’s artistic vision.

Kerry believes that photography and videography serve as powerful mediums to bridge gaps between cultures, fostering a deeper understanding of the human experience.
