About Natasha Caruana
Natasha Caruana is a photographic artist living and working in London. She has an MA in Photography from the Royal College of Art, London and is a Senior Lecturer of Photography at the University for the Creative Arts, Farnham, UK.
Caruana’s art practice is grounded in research concerned with narratives of love, betrayal and fantasy. Significant to all Caruana’s work is the questioning of how today’s technology is impacting relationships.
The newly commissioned, Divorce Index, shows at FACT Gallery, Liverpool, until 1 October. The piece is a culmination of the work made during her residency at the Open Data Institute, as part of the Data as Culture Programme 2015/16.
In 2014 Caruana was named as the winner of the prestigious BMW Artist in Residence Award at Musée Nicéphore Niépce, France. The award led to solo shows at Les Rencontres d’Arles and Paris Photo and the monograph Coup de Foudre.
Her work has been shown across Australia, China, France, India, Lithuania, Portugal, Saudi Arabia and the United States. Her series Married Man and Fairytale for Sale has been included in numerous contemporary photographic catalogues, printed as monographs, and has toured widely, most recently alongside Public, Private, Secret at the International Center for Photography Museum, New York, 2016, The Real Thing, Flowers Gallery, New York, 2016, Photo50 – Feminine Masculine, London, 2016
