This week Adobe Create magazine published an in-depth profile of represented artist Julie Blackmon and her work titled Disrupting Domesticity: Julie Blackmon’s Take on Small-Town Family Life. Written by Dan Cowles, the article examines the intentions and practice behind Blackmon’s images including her ongoing themes of family, anxiety, and a “totally child-centric” American culture.

“I guess my work is kind of a love letter to the past and that freedom that we had, but also an acknowledgment of the anxiety that I feel, that is real, about not being able to let our kids have that life that we had.” – Julie Blackmon



Perhaps the article’s most engaging aspect is Adobe’s 4-minute documentary short featuring Blackmon. In the video, you view Julie describing her process in her own voice while getting the rare chance to see her work both in the studio and on location at her home in Springfield, MO. The film ends with a great Behind-the-Photo segment about the making of, and inspiration behind, Fake Weather (top) one of Blackmon’s recent releases.
