Julia Duckworth is a photographer well disguised as a Food Scientist and Nutritionist. She was born in Boston, Massachusetts and raised in Savannah, Georgia. Julia had a creative childhood full of dance, painting and photography. At the age of 14, Julia received her first camera, a Minolta 35mm SLR. She took it on a family vacation to New England and by the time she returned home her interest in photography was enough to lead her to purchase wide angle and telephoto lenses. She began photographing parks and coastal areas in and around Savannah and developed her own film and prints. Even at an early age her work showed strong artistic merit. She received 2 photography awards before completing prep school. Later Julia attended Vanderbilt University and studied Psychology before pursuing Masters Degrees in Food Science and Nutrition.
Julia’s passion for photography leads her to many interesting places around the world. The compositions are often times ordinary subjects shown in an unlikely way. From the classic serenity of black and white to captivating colour images, she pursues cities and countrysides with equal creativity and enthusiasm.
