Artist in Residence: Photographer, Julia Forrest Artist Talk

Artist in Residence: Photographer, Julia Forrest Artist Talk

Artist Talk and Slideshow Oct 6th @ 6pm via Facebook LIVE:
Photographer, Julia Forrest will discuss her work, her inspirations, and her tools, including her camera, mirrors, and props. 

During her second residency at Bethany, Julia will photograph the local landscape to create illusions with mirrors and forced perspective. In the studio, she will be using her own compact, self-built darkroom to develop her negatives by hand.

About the Artist
Julia Forrest is a Brooklyn based artist. She works strictly in film and prints in a darkroom she built within her apartment. Her own art has always been her top priority in life and in this digital world, she will continue to work with old processing. Anything can simply be done in photoshop, she prefers to take the camera, a tool of showing reality, and experiment with what she can do in front of the lens.

Julia is currently working as a teaching artist at the Brooklyn Museum, USDAN Art Center, and Abrons Art Center. As an instructor, she thinks it is important to understand that a person can constantly stretch and push the boundaries of their ideas with whatever medium of art they choose. Her goal is for her audience to not only enjoy learning about photography, but to see the world in an entirely new way and continue to develop a future interest in the arts.

Artist in Residence: Julia Forrest – Photography Exhibition

Artist in Residence: Julia Forrest – Photography Exhibition

Julia Forrest is looking forward to jumping into the middle of and capture a brand new landscape at Bethany. She likens it to stepping back in time, as if she one of the first historical photographers set out to explore the unknown world, finding her work develops into the surreal environment she is striving to preserve. In the studio, she will delve into range of processes, including using her own compact, self-built darkroom to print photographs on high quality fiber-based paper, glass plates, wood slices, and cyanotype paper. This exhibition will include the many works created or in process by the conclusion of her residency.
