When Eugene Atget unintentionally pioneered street photography as a new visual arts, he roamed Paris, ostensibly creating model scenes for the painters who visited his shop in Montmartre, he became passionate about preserving the streets, buildings and people he saw vanishing as the industrial age revolutionized France.
All around him, the Paris that had existed for centuries as French culture thrived on its street was being demolished. In photography's youth, he used it as a way to preserve what would be lost to memory forever.
Today's street photography celebrates as well as preserves the immediacy of our urban spaces. As the field has drawn creative new photographers, the content of what they've produced has become increasingly varied as each brings her or his values to the art. Some street photography is gritty, infused with realism, and some more painterly. There's a discussion that echoes the oldest artists' debates – which sends a clearer image of truth, realism or invention?
Deborah's street photography leans toward invention as she embellishes the scenes caught in her lens to reinvent them as art.
Recently, her work has been recognized in Professional Women Photographers juried New York show, Abundance and Scarcity, and she's created a grittier series of visions from the New York subway system: Beneath the Street Photography.
Street photography embraces our streets, buildings, people, transportation and all parts of our urban landscapes. Deborah Julian's images take raw moments and holds them in enhanced perspectives. The artist steps in to heighten reality by re-imagining its elements. In this way, street photography becomes even more a fine art and honors both traditions, photography and painting.
