Webinar: Interview Julia Fullerton-Batten

Hasselblad Ambassador, Julia Fullerton-Batten, is a worldwide acclaimed and exhibited fine-art photographer, having achieved success with her very first fine-art project, ‘Teenage Stories’. Julia’s use of unusual locations, highly creative settings, street-cast models, accented with cinematic lighting are hallmarks of her very distinctive style of photography. She insinuates visual tensions in her images, and imbues them with a hint of mystery, which combine to tease the viewer to re-examine the picture, each time seeing more content and finding a deeper meaning. Utilising the 100 Mpixel resolution and quality of the H6D-100c, Julia also became a Hasselblad Master in 2008, and during this webinar we'll generally be chatting about her career while taking a look at some of her more recent images. As usual, the webinar provided the opportunity to ask questions as part of the live presentation.
