EVERYTHING SHOULD BE UNDER THE SUN
We have only one WORLD yet! -- Fall 2001: 7th issue -- If we destroy it, where else can we go to?

Julie MARDIN


I was born in New York of Turkish parents, studied English in college and minored in Fine Art. I received a Masters in Fine Arts from Columbia University in Creative Writing, and worked in publishing, in childrenís books and at The Paris Review. One of my odd jobs as a photographerís assistant was photographing before and after shots of plastic surgery patients, an experience I hope to turn into a novel, but photography has been keeping me busy for the past few years, during which time Iíve been exhibiting my photocollages based on toys.

I continued with my interest in photography off and on while pursuing my writing. After receiving my Masters I went to get a degree in Commercial Photography from the Center for Media arts. It was a very intense, more of a vocational program, that in six months gave you a taste of all aspects of commercial photography, from shooting on location, in the studio, working in the darkroom, and even running an E6 chemistry line. It gave me a good foundation for still life skills that I use in my work today. I went on to study cibachrome printing at the International Center of Photography, where I developed my own technique of collage and photomontage, sandwiching two or three transparencies or negatives together in the printing, then cutting up and re-arranging the resulting print, re-photographing and often sandwiching yet again in the darkroom--a slow, somewhat painstaking, process. I have moved on to to explore the digital means to achieve similar effects.
