Julia Fullerton-Batten

view description



Julia Fullerton-Batten is a worldwide acclaimed and exhibited fine-art photographer. Her body of work now encompasses major projects spanning a decade of engagement in fine-art photography.
The foundation of her success was 'Teenage Stories' (2005), an evocative narrative of the transition of a teenage girl to womanhood. It portrays the different stages and life situations of an adolescent girl's transition to womanhood as she grapples with the vulnerability of her teenage predicament – adjustments to a new body, her emotional development and changes in her social standing. Her book ‘Teenage Stories’ was published in 2007*.
Julia freely admits to there being a semi-autobiographical element in much of her earlier work, and recounts often falling back on recollections of her own early and teenage years, living in Germany, the USA and the UK, her parent’s divorce, and her own early relationships.

Her latest projects consider social issues. In her most recent project ‘Feral Children, 2015’, Julia re-enacts fifteen reported cases of feral children with child actors. The cases involve a variety of different circumstances in which children were rejected or abused by their parents, others got lost or left in the wild, and some were captured by wild animals.



Julia Fullerton-Batten est une photographe mondialement acclamée exposée. Son corps de travail englobe des projets majeurs couvrant une décennie d'engagement dans la photographie.

La base de son succès était ' les Histoires Adolescentes (2005), un récit évocateur de la transition d'une adolescente à la féminité. Il décrit les différentes étapes et les situations de vie de la transition d'une fille adolescente à la féminité - des rajustements à un nouveau corps, son développement émotionnel et changement de sa position sociale. Son livre ' les Histoires Adolescentes a été publié dans 2007.

Julia admet librement ses premiers travaux comme étant semi-autobiographique  et raconte ses souvenirs d’adolescente, vivant en Allemagne, les USA et le Royaume-Uni, le divorce de ses parent et ses premières relations.

Ses derniers projets considèrent des questions sociales. Dans son projet le plus récent ' des Enfants Sauvages, 2015 ', Julia reproduit quinze cas rapportés d'enfants sauvages avec des enfants acteurs. Les cas impliquent une variété de circonstances différentes dans lesquelles les enfants ont été rejetés ou abusés par leurs parents, d'autres se sont perdus ou sont partis dans la nature et certains ont été capturés par des animaux sauvages.
