The Eye of Photography presents on a monthly basis features of The Agents Club such as their Insta News, Master Series or Profiles.
Based in London, Julia Fullerton-Batten was born in Bremen, grew up in Germany and in the US before settling in the UK.
Julia studied photography at college and assisted professional photographers for several years before gaining recognition as a fine-art photographer in 2005.
Julia admits to a pronounced semi-autobiographical influence in much of her earlier work, often falling back on recollections of her own early and teenage years, her parent’s divorce, and her own early relationships.
Julia’s use of unusual locations, highly creative settings, street-cast models, accented with cinematic lighting are hallmarks of her very distinctive style of photography.
She insinuates visual tensions in her images, and imbues them with a hint of mystery.
The foundation of her success was TEENAGE STORIES, an evocative narrative of the transition of a teenage girl to womanhood.
THE ACT is a comprehensive study of the performing and private lives of fifteen women active in the UK sex industry. Her still images are enhanced by interviews with the ladies, captured both in video and text.
Her more recent projects consider social issues, frequently covering controversial subject matter. For example, in FERAL CHILDREN, Julia re-enacts fifteen reported historical cases of feral children.
Julia Fullerton-Batten has won countless awards for both her commercial and fine-art work, and is a Hasselblad Master.
Her work is held in the permanent collections of The National Portrait Gallery in London and the Musée de l’Elysée in Lausanne.
