Julie Blackmon Captures The Craziness of Everyday Family Life


Photographer Julie Blackmon captures the craziness of everyday family life in her latest photo series ‘Homegrown’. Being the oldest of nine children herself, there’s both a fictional as well as auto-biographical element in her photographs. Inspired by Dutch paintings from the 17th century, the house is always full of children and by looking at the pictures, there is always something new to discover. From overly sentimental and saccharine to some darker moods, Blackmon’s work which is also displayed in various galleries can be summarized with the words of her NYC’s gallery site: “Hair may grow, logos updated, furniture replaced: things change, yet childhood remains touchingly, hilariously, much the same.”
