Julie Eccles is a photographer, living in South London. From a very early age she has always had a keen interest in the arts, due to her Father’s influence.
Her photography cannot be characterized by any one element and she does not believe in producing work within one particular aspect of photography.
Julie is constantly exploring fresh ideas, taking on board whatever has inspired her and developing it creatively through the lens. However, recurring themes of landscapes, architecture and organic forms are to be found in her portfolio. Alongside these the elements of colour, line, shape and texture are often evident.
She is drawn to unusual viewpoints of commonly seen structures, spaces and the natural world. Julie uses abstraction to show the beauty that is so often not glimpsed whilst also having the ability to produce accurate representations of scenes, capturing distinctive moments and creating a sense of awe.
Inspiration is to be found everywhere for Julie. The ever-changing light means colours and landscapes never remain the same – a constant state of flux means places can be revisited.
More recently, Julie has been developing new work based on Brick Lane, London. She produced work using photography and textiles and is continuing to expand on these ideas.
