London-based Julia Fullerton-Batten is a world-wide acclaimed and exhibited fine art photographer. Her work is best known for creative settings and highly cinematic lighting. This small collection of personal work, however, veers a bit from her signature style. The artist built hauntingly beautiful double exposure portraits by layering people together with various landscapes.
Pensive subjects find themselves consumed by the urban scenes or the rural surroundings. There is no distinguishable line between elements and worlds collide into a single, mesmerizing image filled with layers of reality. Her subjects seem filled with sorrow and the bleak settings only add to these feelings of solitude and isolation.
According to her bio, “She insinuates visual tensions in her fine-art images, and imbues them with a hint of mystery, that combine to tease the viewer to re-examine the picture continuously, each time seeing more content and finding a deeper meaning with every viewing.”
