julia fullerton-batten is rapidly developing a reputation as one of the leading young photographers in the country. She has won a large number of awardsm and her images have been hung in the national potrait gallery, London and at Paris-photo.
For her enchanting new exhibition, Teenage Stories, Julia features teenage grirls placed amid miniature worlds, peeling gum off of shoes the size of cars and waking up beneath highway underpasses. While the physical awkwardness is meant to exaggerate the emotional instabillity at that age, the capsized scale at the same time reveals that the girls who have a handle on their
surroundings are, actually, only dreaming.
