Julia Fullerton-Batten was born in Bremen from an English and German family. She was very young when her family moved to the US where she graduated at the Berkshire College of Art & Design.She is an amazing contemporary artist.
At school-leaving age she decided to enter a career in photography. She has not looked back since. Julia gets inspiration for her personal work through her observations of everyday life as well as her love for art, cinema, and awareness of current sociological trends. She has also found that, subconsciously, much of the subject matter echoes memories from her own childhood.
"I grew up in a small town in Germany, and I remember male friends of mine turning up unannounced at the house. Then we would go sit in my room, but we never really knew what to say. There was always that uncomfortable silence. I visualised this idea in other projects already, but in Awkward I wanted to give special attention to feeling so uncomfortable around boys as a teenager." Julia Fullerton-Batten
