SIMPLY INSPIRED BY NATURE
Noted for her painterly vision, Julie creates calm, sensitive photographs
with a quiet observation using natural light and shade.
‘a style born out of a sense of place, a deep love of country and a particular colour palette.’
She shoots with both film and digital cameras.
Being the middle of three generations of film photographers, I always feel extremely proud that photography is firmly embedded in my DNA. My upbringing of film, piles of negatives, a red box brownie camera and the smell of the darkroom are responsible for my deep, continued interest in shooting film and traditional printing. Time in the darkroom is hugely important to me, working on Art Photography projects with prints seen as artefacts.
I shoot with both film and digital cameras and my interest lies within traditional analogue practices, but through a contemporary context.
To my fuel vision, quality time spent at the Manchester School of Art and University of Gloucestershire studying the three disciplines of Art, Design and Photography, culminating with an MA in Fine Art Photography and papers written on Colour Psychology - all of which continue to feed in to and directly influence my work. As a result of my research into Minimalism, I’ve become fascinated by Scandinavian and Japanese Aesthetics which has influenced my photographic style.
My work has been featured in magazines, books and blogs.
