Lot Details

"I Love It" is from the series "Domestic Vacations," which closely examines family life through carefully framed scenes that catalog the mundanity of everyday activities. Each of these works unites the banal and the dramatic to adequately depict the underlying paradoxes of the domestic realm. Family life is mixed with pleasure and pain, and this image of two girls looking at the contents of a present captures the joy that comes with being part of a family unit.

Julie Blackmon began exhibiting in 2004, and has since established a successful career with her unique and recognizable style. She has been honored with numerous awards, including first prize from Center (formally The Santa Fe Center for Photography) in the Project Competition and was included in PDN's 30 New and Emerging Photographers for 2007. Julie has work in the collections of several major museums, including Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art, Kansas City, and Portland Art Museum, Portland. Her images blend fiction and auto-biography, reflecting contemporary family life and the timeless experience of growing up in a large household. Using elements of documentary photography, she creates a space where the fantastic and chaotic qualities of everyday life come to the forefront. Her monograph Domestic Vacations was released in September 2008.
