Portraits of Fiction, opens Saturday October 10th 7-9 pm
Portraits of Fiction explores the process of collage through found photographs. Julia Salamonik detaches images of people from their surroundings and delicately tucks them away into understated yet striking scenes. All at once simple and quiet they each have a slightly playful side to them.
Born into a tight knit Polish family, Julia grew up amidst a strong cultural tradition of storytelling. She recently graduated from the University of Washington where she studied Photography and Slavic Languages and Literature.
