Keeley Bentley

Biography

Keeley is a Fine Art Photographer & Lecturer based in the North West of England.

Keeley’s work challenges her personal transition to adulthood, which is explored through various female characters that provoke narratives surrounding the voyeur presented upon women showcased in the media. 


She states about her practice; 

"The women I aim to explore and present come from a study that forms my on-going photographic practice; that explores the adolescent female and her place within the photographic canon. The images of young girls are fed so unconsciously to us through various sources, Hollywood Cinema, Fashion Advertisements, Fine Art and Erotica, that much so we don’t even notice anymore. The adolescent girl provokes narratives of sexual desire, voyeurism, hysteria and nostalgia. What I set to present is an exploration of the problem that is still instilled upon female adolescence in the postmodern culture we live in."


Keeley currently lectures in Photography at Blackpool & the Fylde College, whilst studying an MA in Photography at Manchester School of Art.
