Biography

As a teenager, Julia Genet explores photography, paints on her polaroids, plays with multiple exposures and silver treatments with her old Soviet cameras. 

Passionate about cinema, she obtained a Master's degree in film photography in 2010. 

Many workshops, notably with Claudine Doury and Paolo Verzone, confirm her taste for portraiture. 

In order to enrich her plastic vocabulary and satisfy her passion for color, Julia learns marbling and suminagashi, challenging techniques of painting on water, and follows since 2019 the courses of Nihon-ga, the traditional Japanese painting, of artist Yiching Chen. 

These skills enrich her pictorial language and are mixed with photography, which she conceives as material. Her work has been exhibited in England, Germany, Czech Republic and France.

In addition to her personal practice, she also works on commissions. So far, her work has been published in Télérama, Galimard and La Croix (french magazines).


She recognizes herself in Soulage's words: 

"It's what I do that reveals what I'm looking for."
