Julia Fullerton-Batten + Eclectix

Eclectix Online recently interviewed Julia for an Artist Feature. The interview covers Julia’s childhood memories, inspirations, as well as technical aspects of  creating the “surreal” world within her work.

“I have shot a whole series of projects based on the female psyche; from teenage angst to mother-daughter relationships and a grown woman’s downward spiral when confronted with unrequited love. Without embarrassment I admit to the auto-biographical nature of much of the content of these images. Having exorcised the past I have now fortunately moved on.”

Julia Fullerton-Batten + Beards Project

Noting the prevalence of facial hair in fashion today and how the manicured, yet rugged man has become far more common, Julia set out to contrast these ideas.  She photographed these bearded men in overgrown green houses, depicting nature not only reclaiming space but also taking back the man, creeping into the subject’s beards.  Like Roald Dahl’s Mr Twit with countless food particles caught in his beard, these male subjects reflect the societal perception of the aloof man, however, are complicated by feminine floral arrangements adorning their faces.  These flowers, carefully intertwined with their masculinity, show not only the complexity of the male role within fashion but within modern society as a hole.  In essence, Julia’s images question the symbols and messaging associated with masculinity, the modern man is pulled in two directions. In one, showing a masculine side, but in another, displaying their sensitive being, all while these two notions begin to come full circle, the feminine becoming the essence of the rugged and natural man.  These images offer a provocative look at the nature of beauty and strength.

Julia Fullerton-Batten + Campari + Eva Green

Julia was just shooting actress Eva Green for The 2015 Campari Calendar. Entitled ‘Mythology Mixology,’ the 16th edition of this iconic calendar is the first shot by a woman and is dedicated to celebrating Campari’s colorful history.  Each month highlights the intrinsic stories linked to twelve of the brands most loved, classic cocktails.

Julia suggests that “Campari has always had an inherent ability to recreate itself and keep the brand image fresh, inspiring and imaginative – a goal I constantly strive towards in my own work too. This year’s theme was an interesting challenge, as there was an important job to do in terms of taking historical anecdotes and invigorating them with a modern edge. I’m confident we managed to strike that delicate balance with this year’s imagery.”

Below are some BTS images from the shoot, the calendar will be released later this year.

Julia Fullerton-Batten + L’Oeil de la Photographie + In Service

Julia’s recent series, In Service, was just featured over the holiday weekend on L’Oeil de la Photographie.  Below are some words from her on the work but be sure to check out the full statement on their site.

“My theme in this project is inequity. At that time the division between the richest and poorest in society was vast, extreme poverty and its consequences was widespread. In order to escape poverty hundreds of thousands of men and women entered “service”. It was not the relatively comfortable life frequently illustrated in today’s TV programs. There was exploitation and abuse, some of it sexual in nature.In Service exposes some of the going-on behind the walls of the houses of the privileged class in that era.”
