Julia Anna Gospodarou

Architect and International Award-Winning B&W Fine Art photographer, with high distinctions in the most important photography competitions worldwide (IPA, SWPA, PX3, IFPA, Spider Awards etc.), Julia lives in Athens, but considers herself a citizen of the world and this is one of the things that molded her art and life philosophy. Julia has an equal passion for architecture and photography and practices both with the same enthusiasm and joy. Interested in photography from a very young age, she is used to think in images and considers them even more important than words. Julia is mostly known for her B&W long exposure architectural photography, but she is covering with her work multiple aspects and photographic genres, as she is in love with beauty in all its forms and is always in search for the best way to express herself in images.

Adept of the idea that processing your photographs is at least as important as capturing them, in order to give them a piece of yourself and make them express your unique vision and view over the world, a view that defines a photographer’s personal style, her work goes beyond the boundaries of traditional photography and enters the fields of imagination and of searching for a perfect world. She calls her style of photography “(en)visionography”, an alternative name for photography – a name that defines better photography in the digital era than the traditional name of “photography”, especially fine art photography, a genre that has to do much more with the vision of the artist than with the subject or what the camera captures. Through her work she strives for perfection and aims to recreate and reinvent the world through her images.

In parallel with her photographic work, Julia writes fine art photography books and teaches fine art architectural photography workshops for groups or private, in many cities around the world. She also mentors students online in B&W fine art photography.

Published internationally in numerous books and magazines, her photographic work can also be seen online on the most important photography sites.
