Julia Thorne's work in the photography medium has spanned nearly three decades and has been as diverse in character as the subjects themselves.
Born in Whangarei, New
Zealand, in 1959, she moved to Auckland in the mid 1970s and is
still based there, but regularly travels abroad.
Journalism at the New Zealand Herald helped open the door to her photography career.
Thorne's experience in
journalism and photography, travel, corporate and lifestyle magazine
individual portraiture, contributes to the layers and
subtleties in the art prints.
Nature's inimitable variety and energy, is
a constant stimulus for her art work. Like the subjects themselves,
each is unique and celebrates life.
