BREAST CANCER CARE

 

UNADORNED

 

Julia admits to a pronounced semi-autobiographical influence in much of her earlier work, often falling back on recollections of her own early and teenage years, her parent’s divorce, and her own early relationships.

IN BETWEEN

 

Julia’s use of unusual locations, highly creative settings, street-cast models, accented with cinematic lighting are hallmarks of her very distinctive style of photography.

LAVAZZA

 

SAN PELLEGRINO

 

She insinuates visual tensions in her images, and imbues them with a hint of mystery.

The foundation of her success was TEENAGE STORIES, an evocative narrative of the transition of a teenage girl to womanhood.
