Julia is a Virginia based artist who makes these incredible prints from her original Polaroid photographs.
Having always lived in the city, her move to rural Virginia has inspired her to revisit her love for instant Polaroid photography. These photographs are a selection of works from several series that explore the deep forest and rural landscape. The images reflect her interest in finding the details in the unbroken areas of the forest. She is also attracted to the expanses of land where built environments mingle with nature in between cities.
Polaroid photos were kind of ahead of their time, weren’t they? With film camera’s you just had to hope you got the money shot, but with the Polaroid you got to see your pictures right away.... it really was the most amazing thing to see the picture develop right before your eyes! I was never able to take pictures that look like this with my Polaroid though!

Gorgeous photos, thanks for sharing! I live in VA too :) I'm right outside of D.C. so, not so rural but still, I love hearing about "local" artists.
