A worldwide acclaimed and exhibited fine-art photographer. Julia has published two books. Her body of work now encompasses twelve major projects spanning a decade of engagement in the field.
Julia Fullerton-Batten takes an idea and weaves magic out of it. She has tackled sensitive and darker subject matters - from the vulnerability of her own transition to womanhood, the trauma of blindness, the sadness of feral children and the prickly subject matter of women voluntarily engaging in the sex industry.
Her use of unusual locations, highly creative settings, street-cast models, accented with cinematic lighting are hallmarks of her very distinctive style of photography. She insinuates visual tensions into her fine-art images and imbues them with a hint of mystery. Enigmatic and ambiguous, often controversial, they pique the curiosity of viewers and provoke them to revisit the image again and again, repeatedly revising their interpretation of its visual content.
She is a Hasselblad Ambassador and Fellow of the British Photographic Society and has work commissioned by The National Portrait Gallery in London held in a permanent collection there. Julia is widely sought after as a speaker at international events and as a judge for adjudicating at prestigious international photographic competitions. She lives in London with her husband and two young boys.
