Julia Fullerton-Batten + In Service

Julia’s latest series, “In Service,” re-envisions the relationship between servants and their wealthy employers in Edwardian era Britain (1901-1911).  In these somewhat amoral vignettes, she contrasts the abuse and exploitation that potentially took place with the interdependence of the subjects.  Shot in the south of England, Julia was fortunate to find three stately homes that offered a more than suitable backdrop for her images. Be sure to read the full artist’s statement watch the behind the scenes video below.

Julia Fullerton-Batten + APhotoEditor + Korea

Julia’s Korea projects, Korea 2013 and Everland were recently featured on The Daily Edit of APhotoEditor. In addition to the gallery of images there is a full interview she did for Blink Magazine with Creative Director and Founder Aram Kim.

“Korea has fascinated me for a while now, with its history, and its long term unresolved tensions between North and South Korea. I therefore decided to use this opportunity to combine the Festival with a personal shoot in Seoul. I had quite some time in which to prepare my ideas for the project. I finally decided this would be an attempt to combine the traditions, culture and history of South Korea against the modern architecture of Seoul.”

Julia Fullerton-Batten + Dodho Magazine + L’Oeil de le Photographie

Julia’s Korea project was recently featured in Dodho Magazine online and L’Oeil de le Photographie.

“My lighting uses a combination of natural and artificial light, which gives a cinematic effect. In the instance of the portraits the beauty and poses of the models wearing Hanbok was sufficient. In some street scenes I used various props in contrast with the traditional dress to give flashbacks to the past, see here ‘Firewood’and ‘Grain’.”

Julia Fullerton-Batten + Art Daily + A Testament to Love

Julia’s current solo exhibition, “A Testament to Love,” her third in New York, was featured on Art Daily last week. The article included a detailed description the show which is open until February 15th at the Jenkins Johnson Gallery.

“Building on her earlier series that investigate the psyches and relationships of teenage girls, her new series narrates the life struggles when love goes wrong. The women in the images wrestle with the eternal search for a happy ending but find themselves left with feelings of solitude, loneliness, fear, regret, and resignation. Fullerton-Batten focuses on the moments just before or just after the climax of the scenario, which are laden with emotion and tension, leaving the viewer with more questions than answers.”
