The American photographer Julie Blackmon portrays everyday life in very unique way. Her works are rich in references that find their roots in Dutch and Flemish painters of about 400 years ago, while in their setting and lighting, her photographs evoke the paintings of Edward Hopper.

“We live in a culture where the struggle between living in the moment versus escaping to another reality is intense since these two opposites strive to dominate” says the artist, whose source of inspiration are clearly surrealism, nostalgia and a sort of geometric structure that give shape to all the pictures.

Julie Blackmore turns the gardens, the buildings, even the storage sheds in the backyard, into additional “characters” in almost every work.
