Julie Bourges (Paris, France, 1981) is, next to her work at Picturetank, autonomous photographer. She seeks to find her way in parallel worlds of her imagination. Bourges lives and works in Paris and studied at the Ecole des Métiers de l’Information.

“After photographing Paris at night for years, reading the book by Jean Baudrillard « Car l’illusion ne s’oppose pas à la réalité », has profoundly changed the way I see this so familiar place. The city seemed transformed to me, as if I had discovered a parallel world. Suddenly I had the feeling that my images were escaping me.”
“This change in perspective – this reversal – freed me from Paris and the weight of her image. From a conventional representation of the city, my photography moved towards a free interpretation of a space, more mental than real. Now, my registration has become more instinctive and abstract. The invisible flush under the surface of the image allow now the revealing of the projections of my unconscious: Umbra, in Latin both shade and reflection and ghost, becomes here an intimate and solitary experience of the urban landscape.”
