Julie Blackmon, Domestic Vacations

SF Camerawork, San Francisco

April 2 - May 23, 2009

Chaos, disorder, family gatherings, game playing... all of these scenarios dominate Domestic Vacations, a solo exhibition of JULIE BLACKMON ’s recent series of color photographic prints. Like Alice in her wonderland, Blackmon's young subjects appear in reality and fantasy, engrossed in their created worlds. Julie Blackmon, herself the oldest of nine children, balances her role as a mother of three and an artist by using her children, nieces, nephews, and friends as subjects in her images.

“These images are both fictional and auto-biographical, and reflect not only our lives today and as children growing up in a large family, but also move beyond the documentary to explore the fantastic elements of our everyday lives, both imagined and real.” – Julie Blackmon
