photographer #111: Julie Blackmon

Julie Blackmon, USA, 1966, is the oldest of nine children. This and the fact that nowadays she is a mother of three resulted in her focus on family life in her photography. For the project Domestic Vacations, which was released as a book, she was inspired by the paintings of Jan Steen and other Dutch and Flemish painters from the 17th century. Her staged scenes tell stories of family life, being both fictional and auto-biographical. Blackmon has been published in a large number of magazines and won several awards. The following images come from her portfolio New Work and from the series Domestic Vacations and Mind Games.
