London based, Julia Fullerton-Batten explores the complex emotional, physical and social transitions experienced by adolescent girls. Her first series "Teenage Stories" pictured a young girls passing into the beginnings of adolescence where the reality of coming responsibility and the non-reality of the fantasy life of a young child played themselves out in domestic/suburban scenes. Her images contrasted through scale and dis-belief, placed her subjects in a dreamworld, one of disproportion as the girls went about their day of chores and responsibilities.
This theme has prevailed in her following bodies of work progressing her subjects over the course of their childhood into adulthood.
Born in Germany, Fullerton-Batten currently lives and works in London, England
