Julie Blackmon

Fever Dreams

The playfully artful and chaotic nature present in the photographs of Julie Blackmon (American, b. 1966) illustrates the everyday people and places that have shaped the artist’s life.

About Julie Blackmon

Julie Blackmon creates compelling images inspired by her experience of growing up in her hometown in Missouri with the chaos of big families and her role as a mother and photographer.

“I suppose I could make a work where the sun is shining, the mom is lying out in the grass, the kids are happy, and everything is perfect, but that wouldn’t interest me—and it wouldn’t be truthful. My aim is to create a more nuanced, subtly humorous and satirical portrait of the way we live today.”
