Self-Portrait: Julie Linz

I started photographing in high school with a roll of Kodak 35mm and a borrowed SLR camera. The process of creating a photograph in the darkroom was something I fell in love with and took me to The Columbus College of Art and Design in Ohio, where I graduated with a BFA in Photography.  What grabbed me right from the start was the art of visual storytelling.

My work is moody and dark. Haunting images that lead you down a path you may be hesitant to follow. Nothing shocking, nothing disturbing, not what nightmares are made of but haunting in the best way: memorable.  When an idea surges into my head, the image is already a part of my subconscious.  I know instinctively how to tell that story.  Creating photographs is no longer a choice, it is most simply who I am.
