Julia was selected to judge this month’s Life Framer competition, A Human Touch. She recently sat down with them to answer some questions regarding her style, technique, and new projects.
Your blog has some fascinating insight, and it seems that your shoots are often quite grand affairs with a team of hair and make-up artists, prop stylists etc (and all the better for it). Now that you feel accustomed to having a team around you, do you still enjoy being alone with a camera?
I always carry a camera with me; the shoots themselves are only a minor part of the use of a camera. Not only do I use my camera for personal shoots, but also to find new ideas and to flesh out the bare bones of them once I decide to go ahead with one. I had a solo show in Tokyo a few weeks back and decided to stay on and take photos. I had a translator and an assistant with me. We had minimal lighting that we kept in a suitcase and just walked the streets. Once I found something interesting, we would set up the lights, and I would wait for someone interesting to walk by. This is an approach I used to take, and it felt very refreshing. No hair and make up, no styling, no casting, no brief. Just enjoying photography…
