About

About me
Julia’s rather abstract and conceptual photography is putting personal struggles, feelings and mental states in a wider context of society. Her work is mainly concentrating on the visualisation of feelings and hidden aspects of life. With blurred and multilayered photographic approaches she is using the medium to look behind the surface of life, at the subtle essence of everyday things and feelings. She loves to involve with topics about the differences between people and cultures, about society from another perspective, about the everyday.
A life between Germany, where she grew up, and China, where she spent most of her adult life, inspires her work.
