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 had her work featured in publications such as the BBC and Aesthetica Magazine and has been exhibited in places such as the U.K, France, Hong Kong, China and Myanmar. In 2021 she was shortlisted for the Sony World Photography Awards and received a Prix de la Photographie Paris Gold prize in self-portraiture in 2020.

A globetrotter from birth, she is drawn to exploring transient states while questioning society and our relationship to media, culture and identity. Through her process she seeks to unveil a deeper meaning and create a space for connection and healing. Julia expresses her findings in a form of conceptualised concepts, collective observations, performance, portraiture and poetry. 

Julia currently resides in Paris, France.
