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 + 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.”

Colourant by Floto + Warner

Colourant is a new image series by Floto + Warner.   These are events that will pass you by as an imperceptible flash. A fleeting moment, that blocks and obscures the landscape, a momentary graffiti of air and space. Creating shapes of nature not experienced by the human eye, these short-lived anomalies are frozen for us to view at 3500th of a second. Transforming the non-discernible and ephemeral to the eternal. The essence of photography—immortalize the transitory.  There is no Photoshop used in these images and were shot with a high-speed shutter to freeze the action. Floto + Warner were conscious of the environment in this project, the colors are non-toxic, non-staining, water based and composed of 95% water.
