“WHERE THE SIDEWALK ENDS” Photographic works by JULI BALLA The works in this exhibition are based on street photography from the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s. Balla was also influenced by film stills of the same era. The photographs themselves become film stills, as they conjure more questions than answers. “It intrigues me why people are so fascinated by documentary photography from another period of time. The images immediately take on a sense of mystery. As in a film still, the images evoke a feeling of suspended animation, while one tries to decipher what has just happened or about to happen.”Balla has created a colour palate, reminiscent of feature films shot in Technicolor. Everything feels weirdly saturated and faded at the same time. Stylist Janai Anselmi meticulously assembled an authentic vintage wardrobe for each era. This provides a strong visual element throughout. The photographs are printed on rag art paper Size: 1330x866 + white handling border (not included in framed works) Edition: 5
