Poetic Expressions (15 photos)

Look at the world through the eyes of a creative 16-year-old and, if you're lucky, you'll see something like this. Julia Wang (aka auroille) is a teenager who is “obsessed with bokeh, life, and color.” She uses double exposure and sweet quotes to create wonderfully emotive works of art. Like a breath of fresh air, each photo serves as a gentle reminder that the world is filled with creativity, inspiration and hope and that when we stop to look around, we can experience simple moments of happiness.

“I'm a whimsical person, I enjoy dabbling in the surreal and soft qualities of light. Living in a small town in New Jersey, I've never had a true taste of life. I love spontaneity and adventure, and the small beautiful things in life. It's my dream and lifelong passion to travel the world and document the lives of people, culture, and diversity. All aspects of photography interest me, but I feel my place in this world is the silent photo-documenter on the side – taking photographs that would mean something in the coming years. To preserve the history and time of my era. I picked up my first DSLR in January of 2009 and I am head over heels in love. I would consider myself self taught, seeing as I've never taken a photography course. The internet is my teacher, my friend, my inspiration. A lot of people like to call themselves visionaries with unique visions of beauty, but I just call myself just a regular girl with a passion for taking photos of life on Earth and the people I love. ” Julia Wang
