Everyday Fictional Life

Being the oldest of nine children and now the mother of three American photographer Julie Blackmon has a unique way of portraying everyday life. Her images are both fictional and auto-biographical and amongst others inspired by Dutch 17th century painter Jan Steen, and reflect not only our lives today as children growing up in a large family, but also move beyond the documentary to explore the fantastic elements of our everyday lives, both imagined and real. As an artist and as a mother, she believes life’s most poignant moments come from the ability to fuse fantasy and reality: to see the mythic amidst the chaos. Via Trendland.
