About the Artist
Award winning Master Fine Art photographer, making Limited edition prints. Shooting both film and digital,
Julie’s portfolios cover black and white photographs of fruit and vegetables whilst her colour floral and botanical studies explore both her signature style of minimal form and palette and often the notion of Mono Chrome. One colour.
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 Fine Art Photography projects with prints seen as artefacts.
For my Limited Edition Fine Art Photographs, I shoot mainly film with an interest in fusing analogue and digital technologies to create a new signature – where the past and the future are gathered.
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.
