Since graduating in 2009 with an MA in Photography from London College of Communication, Gemma Land has shown her varied portfolio of work in galleries in the UK and Internationally. She is interested in the ideology and socio-political structures within residential and public architecture.
With influences such as Bernd and Hilla Becher, Andy Warhol, Francesca Woodman and Eugene Atget, her photographs of suburban houses feature an unsettling symmetry. Gemma also takes inspiration from the Gothic, Baroque, and Surrealism art movements.
Gemma Land has won the Creatives Archives Award that enabled her to cross boundaries between fashion, art and photography, and launched her first collection of scarves at London and Paris A/W10 fashion week.

Gemma Land has recently been developing a large project inspired by Gothic writer and Art collector Horace Walpole, in conjunction with Strawberry Hill.
