Julia Parks received her undergraduate degree from Central Saint Martins School of Art in 2015 and through an exchange programme studied photography and printmaking at Kyoto Seika University, Japan in 2013. Her practice encompasses film, animation and photography, often using series of photographs and projected 16mm film. Parks explores the methodologies of 20th century filmmakers and photographers, often reenacting historical artworks in the attempt to re-imagine and experience being in the moment of their production. More recently, she has been documenting the process of a sheep farm being sold on the Solway coast of Cumbria. Parks has exhibited in both England and Japan including; All Work and No Play, The People's History Museum, Manchester (2016), and 5 under 30, The Daniel Blau Gallery, London (2015).
