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.
Having graduated from Central Saint Martin’s School of Art in 2015, Julia has since exhibited work in exhibitions and film festivals in the UK, Europe and Japan. She co-organised the Arts Council-funded residency, The Allerdale Film Farm, which explored handmade 16mm film making in West-Cumbria.
In April 2018 she was featured on BBC Countryfile where she demonstrated how to develop 16mm film using seaweed. She is currently taking part in the FLAMIN Fellowship 2020/21. Julia is based in west Cumbria, UK.
