Biography

Netti Hurley’s participatory 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 in the lives of a london sex worker and porn star in ‘Misha’ and ‘Big Titty Kitty’, both presented with a tender realism and unpatronising 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. A unique style quickly gaining notoriety as she has created films for Nike, Puma, Tommy Jeans, Adidas, Stella McCartney, Beats, Loewe and music videos for some of the UK’s most exciting young artists. In 2018, her debut film, ‘Coping’, premiered on Dazed. Shortly after, the release of ‘Black Rose’ by british rapper Ghetts, was praised for its “...powerful, positive message and cinematic excellence.”
