JUlie Blackmon

Julie Blackmon says she believes life’s most poignant moments come from the ability to fuse fantasy and reality: to see the mythic amidst the chaos. Inspired by the Dutch proverb of a “Jan Steen household,” which describes a home in disarray, overfilled with boisterous and rowdy children, Blackmon photographs the everyday lives of her family and her sisters’ families in their homes in Springfield, Missouri. The tableaux she creates are pieced together from several shots, resulting in collages that are both tailored and precarious.
