My name is Julia and I grew up in Stockholm, Sweden. I have an MFA in Fine Art, I used to be an avid sumo wrestler until I tore my ACL, I love traveling to less frequently visited countries and my pleasures are simple; a good sweat in a sauna, consuming more espresso than water and failing miserably at anything that requires coordination. I moved to the US upon completing my degree where I have dabbled in unorthodox professions and felt like a tourist for 14 years. During my first year in the US I thought I would continue working in time based media but I quickly tired of waiting for permission and budgets so photography became a happy middle ground where I could explore many aspects of my interests within one art form, including dance, sculpture and painting. Photography also works as a great passport and tool to combat my social anxiety.
I’ve always been fascinated with the human form in all its iterations, particularly the female body which has been the core of my photographic practice since 2017.
