"Swisscom"

I was commissioned by Heimat, Berlin to shoot the Swisscom Campaign in Zurich.

NEW PERSONAL WORK…..Noting the prevalence of facial hair in fashion today and how the manicured, yet rugged man has become far more common, Julia set out to contrast these ideas. She photographed these bearded men in overgrown green houses, depicting nature not only reclaiming space but also taking back the man, creeping into the subject’s beards. Like Roald Dahl’s Mr Twit with countless food particles caught in his beard, these male subjects reflect the societal perception of the aloof man, however, are complicated by feminine floral arrangements adorning their faces. These flowers, carefully intertwined with their masculinity, show not only the complexity of the male role within fashion but within modern society as a whole. In essence, Julia’s images question the symbols and messaging associated with masculinity, the modern man is pulled in two directions. In one, showing a masculine side, but in another, displaying their sensitive being, all while these two notions begin to come full circle, the feminine becoming the essence of the rugged and natural man. These images offer a provocative look at the nature of beauty and strength.
