Women Walking

Nettie Hurley

Stink Films

“I hope this might inspire changes that allow women to walk freely, without insecurity.”

Netti Hurley is British director and photographer whose documentary style accompanies her subjects on experiences outside of the conventional ideas of beauty and normality. Her empathetic lens moves past the curtained edge of society and its taboos by surfacing a tender realism and unpatronizing humour. These explorations result in beautifully intimate portraits that are deeply human in their vulnerability. Netti's approach is uniform across all her work as she uses the camera to reveal elements of her subject to themselves and the audience, seemingly in real time.
