Julia Katharina Keil


Julia is a visual artist born in Germany but raised globally with a background in photography, the performing arts and education.

Since completing her Masters in Photojournalism/ Documentary Photography at London College of Communication in 2012, Julia has taken part in various exhibitions such as The Royal Photographic Society International Print Exhibition in London, Slideluck-Hong Kong and was nominated as one of Hong Kong’s ten best emerging photographers by DRKRMS Media in 2015.

A globetrotter from birth, she is drawn to understanding transient states and cultures and seeks connection and beauty on both an external and internal level. Julia expresses her findings in a form of collective observations, performance and visual poetry using both analog and digital photography.

Julia currently resides in Paris, France where she is following various projects, encouraging ways of seeing, and building her relationship with her environment.
