About

Biography


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

Keeley’s personal work challenges her transition to adulthood, which is explored through various female characters that provoke narratives surrounding the history/culture of how women have been represented in the media. Influences are predominately vintage films, adverts and her own family’s archive which is built on a foundation of strong independent women. 

 Keeley graduated from her BA in Photography at Blackpool & The Fylde College in 2016, and has just completed her MA in Photography at Manchester School of Art, 2018. 


Keeley has been published internationally and has been featured in British Journal of Photography amongst many other photography and female-based publications worldwide. More recent she has been published as part of the ‘Terms & Conditions’ project run by Format amongst names like Harley Weir, Richie Shazam & Michael Bailey-Gates which challenged the censored image on Instagram; as well as published work Keeley continues to exhibit as a wider cultural network across the North of England, including Liverpool Biennial Fringe as well as many group shows across Manchester, Liverpool and London. She has just finished a commission based in Barrow with Signal Film and Media based around using digital media.

Keeley was an associate artist of Blackpool’s first ART B&B, where she also works as a Creative Host. 

New work is also in development stages  that will look into her family’s history in Blackpool and the foundation of the female family members she grew up with.
