“Largely autobiographical, Julien describes her images as ‘autoportraits’ in which the camera is the tool used for negotiating ‘society and its spaces’, an experience central to the formation of subjectivity. While the repetitive serial format works to suspend a narrative of displacement or dislocated presence, staged within intimate domestic or coldly institutional historical interiors her photographs also question the relationship between that elusive self and its environment.
