Juliette Blightman

The Netherlands, Amsterdam Galerie Fons Welters

Originally coming from film, Juliette Blightman's (GB, 1980) work lends itself to photography very easily. Her everyday practice is photographic as she records her life, a process she has been doing since she was twelve. Depicting her friends, daughter, parties, travels, exhibition (openings) and more, in her practice Blightman takes us into her daily life through photos, videos, drawings, paintings and installations. She is fascinated by how technology has changed and has made the camera available and accessible at all times through our camera phones. Combining her interest for the every day with that of familiar private moments of life, she records the world around her with a sense of voyeurism as well as melancholy - documenting what is threatened by censorship and the over stated rights of privacy.
