Oddity: A photo submission by Julia fletcher

Hey creeps! We're super stoked to share with you our first submission from Julia Fletcher! Here's a little bit about her: "I go to school at Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore, MD. I’m working towards getting my BFA in Photography with a minor in Gender Studies. I’ve been interested in pursuing photography as well as film since I was in middle school, starting with film. I’d make my own short films and while I was growing up I was convinced that I wanted to be a director, until I started taking my first photo class in high school. After that, I became more and more interested in photography as my main medium. Recently, I’ve been getting back into film as well as mixed media photography with design and even painting. When I think about people that inspire my work, I rarely think of photographers, but rather directors. Directors like Wes Anderson, Stanley Kubrick, and Nicholas Winding Refn have really inspired my artistic vision. For “Oddity”, I was heavily inspired by Stanley Kubrick and Nicholas Winding Refn’s directing and set design. The series is shot and edited with a cinematic mindset and meticulous manipulation of the environment. Some films from Kubrick that I pulled inspiration from was “The Shining” and “2001: A Space Odyssey”, and for Refn, “Drive” and “Only God Forgives”. Music is also an influencing factor in my work, a lot of my neon lights that I use in my work is not only an inspiration from movies but also from my love of synthwave, which is electronic music inspired by 1980s soundtracks."
