Julie Derbyshire

Julie Derbyshire

Julie’s constructed images are the final distillation of her creative process, encompassing acts of making, manipulation and disruption. Captured through the medium of photography, the objects and materials she chooses to engage with become more compelling than the original; transient moments of precariousness and suspense are held within the frame. Informed by the complexity and fragility of lived experience and inspired by art historical references, Julie invites the viewer to reflect upon the fusion of beauty and disquiet that her work conveys. And so to question what lies beyond the image.

Julie holds a BA Photography (1st Class) from the University of Westminster and an MA Photography (Distinction) from the London College of Communication (UAL). She has exhibited in the UK and abroad and her work is held in private collections. She was a finalist in the Travers Smith Art Awards (2015) and the Arte Laguna Prize Venice (2016), and was awarded the Photofusion Prize (2017). She was nominated for the RPS 100 Heroines Awards. Julie lives and works in London.
