About Julie Blackmon

Inspired by 17th-century Dutch and Flemish paintings of domestic life, Julie Blackmon photographs carefully orchestrated tableaus that feature members of her own family and are imbued with a sense of the uncanny. Blackmon’s "Domestic Vacations" series (2008), for example, shows a world saturated with color, filled with toys and candy and populated by mischievously deadpan children. As she explains, her work combines the fantasies and realities of domesticity: “These images are both fictional and autobiographical and [. . .] explore the fantastic elements of our everyday lives, both imagined and real.”

American, b. 1966, Springfield, Missouri, based in Springfield, Missouri
