‘Teenage Stories’ by Julia Fullerton-Batten

With a new interest in miniature sets built for photography I stumbled across the work ofJulia Fullerton-Batten. Her series ‘Teenage Stories‘ focuses on the adolescent experiences of teenage girls.

Using hand built miniature sets and teenage subjects (no photoshop involved), Julia exacerbates the emotions, awkwardness, venerability and self-consciousness of ‘coming of age’. If Julia had depicted these scenes in real city/suburban environments they may appear almost photojournalistic, however her use of scale creating giants out of her subjects adds an uncanny atmosphere which makes us as the spectator explore the issues she’s raising.
