AWARD-WINNING lens-based artist, photographer & FILMMAKER | North Yorkshire


Rachel Rimell is a photographic artist and filmmaker based in Malton, North Yorkshire.

Her practice spans documentary and conceptual genres exploring themes of identity, transitions and liminal spaces alongside the transient nature of human experience and place in the landscape. Her work is informed by notions of the inner self and outer persona and the invisible threshold between the two and the impact of internal perception, memory and nostalgia and external experience on our human connection to the landscape and the ‘out there’ beyond the confines of the physical body.

A photojournalist by training, her work incorporates digital and experimental analogue techniques alongside performance, moving image and sound.

She holds an MA in Photography and is a Portrait of Britain winner, a previous finalist for The Guardian’s Women Behind the Lens and has been shortlisted for Belfast Photo Festival 2022, Photo North Emerging Artist 2023 and RPS IPE 165. her work has been widely exhibited including at Format 23 and the RPS Summer Show 2023.

As well as her art practice Rachel accepts commissions for editorial, portraits, business branding, products and natural documentary style family photography and short films.
