Julia’s most recent personal project, “A Testament to Love,” is a narrative series that depicts the struggles of life when love goes wrong. The female protagonists wrestle with the search for a happy ending, but are resigned to loneliness, fear and regret. Each image is set against a cinematic background inspired by Hollywood films of the 1960s and 1970s, while referencing the work of Edward Hopper. More work and the full press release after the jump.
Braschler/Fischer have been traveling this month; after being back in Zurich for just 2 days, they flew to Uganda. Working with the Red Cross, the photographers captured images of refugees from the Congo in the southern Ugandan border city of Kisoro. They worked with the refugees to collect not only their images but stories of an unthinkable, seemingly never ending, civil war.

On a recent trip to Tokyo, Japan for an upcoming opening of her “Mothers & Daughters” show at TokyoArtsGallery in Shibuya-ku, Julia spent all her free time shooting. On a small burget, with a local producer and assistant, she walked around the metropolis for days, searching for images that struck her. The photos highlight an isolation that is often associated with notions of Tokyo and an emotional tension that is present in much of Julia’s work.

Long a source of fascination, twins have often been a theme of myth and legend. The founding of Rome by Romulus and Remus is one of the many instances that spring to mind. Even when separated at birth, identical twins can have uncannily similar tastes, habits, and life experiences. In this landmark photographic study, Martin Schoeller uses his distinctive close-up portrait style to examine sets of identical twins and multiples. In capturing every subtle aspect of their facial structure, myriad similarities and seemingly miniscule—yet significant —differences are revealed, leaving one to ponder how appearance and identity is defined in individuals.
