BIOGRAPHY

Bronwyn Kidd (born 1969) is an Australian photographer known for fashion and portraiture.

After completing a Bachelor of Arts at RMIT University, Bronwyn moved to London where she ventured into the larger universe of the commercial scene and shot exclusively for Savile Row’s seasonal collections and magazine advertising.

Her style is nostalgic for the greats of haute couture photography, and delivers vivid evocations to to the glamour of the fashion world. Ripping the seamless backdrop she uncovers a witty iconoclasm that recalls the work of Cecil Beaton of the 1930s.

Kidd has exhibited her work internationally at the National Portrait Gallery, London as well as nationally at the National Gallery of Victoria, Monash Gallery of Art and Living Arts Space Bendigo. Her work is included in numerous collections including Hardy Amies, London, The National Portrait Gallery, London and the Condé Nast Archives.

In 2016 she co-created, with long-time collaborator the creative director Virginia Dowzer, an historical photomontage to promote the National Gallery of Victoria’s 200 Years of Australian Fashion exhibition. She has also been published in The National Portrait Gallery’s (London) ‘100 Fashion Icons’; one hundred portraits of key fashion figures from their collection.
