Julia is a visual artist and poet 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 had her work featured in publications such as the BBC and Aesthetica Magazine and has taken part in various exhibitions such as The Royal Photographic Society International Print Exhibition. She received a Prix de la Photographie Paris Gold prize in self-portraiture in 2020 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 exploring transient states and questioning society and our relationship to media, culture and identity. Through her process she seeks to find introspection and connection on both an external and internal level. Julia expresses her findings in a form of conceptual concepts, collective observations, performance, portraiture 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.
