An accomplished architect, internationally acclaimed photographer, author and highly sought-after educator, teaching workshops and lecturing around the world, Julia was passionate about art from a young age, striving to express herself artistically through a variety of mediums: architecture, drawing, and photography.
IPA International Photography Awards Professional Architecture Photographer of the Year, World Photography Awards & Hasselblad Masters Finalist, winner of more than 80 prestigious international awards and distinctions, Julia is considered a leader of the New Wave of 21st Century Black and White Fine Art Photography.
Julia is the founder of (en)Visionography ™, a movement aiming to define a new way of creating fine art photography, based on the vision of the artist and his own life experiences, rather than on depicting the actual subject or the conventions of traditional photography. (en)Visionography introduces the concept of “total artistic freedom” in photography, which brings it closer to the idea of art. (en)Visionography is steadily gaining support around the world from artists eager to create authentic personal art.
This theory reflects in her personal creative and processing method Photography Drawing (PhtD™), a method based on the interaction of light with shapes and objects and how this can be translated into an image by using the principles of classical drawing.
Author of the best-selling book From Basics to Fine Art – Black and White Photography – Architecture and Beyond, book that quickly became a reference for the black and white fine art photography community, Julia's aim is to push the boundaries and to innovate with her work, to create a new aesthetic in photography, while remaining faithful to the classical principles of harmony and craftsmanship in art.
Below is a sample among many exceptional reviews of the book, made by George DeWolfe, who studied with Ansel Adams and Minor White:
"I consider Julia’s (en)Visionography and Photography Drawing the most important innovation in black and white photography since the invention of the Zone System. (...) Outside of Ansel Adams’ Basic Photo Series, From Basic to Fine Art: Black and White Photography – Architecture and Beyond is the best book on black and white photography written in the last 40 years."
Julia ia a member of the prestigious DxO Image Masters Gallery and a DxO Ambassador, a VIP Formatt-Hitech Ambassador, featured artist endorsed by Topaz Labs, NIK Software, SmugMug, Camerapixo, Stark Magazine etc.
Published internationally in numerous books and magazines, Julia's photography can be found in numerous private collections worldwide.
