Julia Parks’s practice encompasses film, animation and photography, often using series of photographs and projected 16mm film. Through this medium, she explores the different relationships between landscape, place and people, often focusing on the west-coast of Cumbria.
In April 2018 she was featured on BBC Countryfile where she demonstrated how to develop 16mm film using seaweed. In 2020/21 she took part in the FLAMIN Fellowship where she developed a new moving image work about seaweed.
Julia is currently living in Hawick as part of a 6-month residency with Alchemy Film & Arts as part of their The Teviot, the Flag and the Rich, Rich Soil programme.
