    Julia Fullerton-Batten: Personal Work

Julia Fullerton-Batten compares youth culture in this super-bright photography

Posted by Liv Siddall,

Skimming through her impressively enormous portfolio, it becomes clear that Julia Fullerton-Batten’s famous images are a medley of alarm-bell bright colours, crowds and garish aspects of modern life. Add in the fact that she’s inspired by the transformation of girls to women and the differing attitudes towards this in contrasting countries, and you’ve got some pretty deep stuff to get your head around. Often using the artificial waters of the local swimming pool, or the ubiquitous British schoolgirl’s summer uniform, Julia’s compositions of primarily women and young girls is at once disturbing and familiar, but no doubt utterly original and incredibly impressive.
