Julia is a photographer and poet born in Munich, Germany but raised globally in countries such as Israel, America, Hong Kong and Korea. Her further studies brought her to the U.K. where she first did her Bachelor's in Performing Arts, Media and Communications in Oxford.
Since completing a Diploma in Professional Photographic Practices and a 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 has always been drawn to understanding transient states and connectivity, on both an external and internal level, expressing her findings in a form of both written and visual poetry. Her work acts as a form of meditation and musing for inner peace, beauty, emotional vulnerability and introspection captured through the medium of both digital and film photography. She approaches her subjects and work with great empathy and psychological understanding.
