Subject matter
Julie Blackmon's work addresses family life in contemporary culture. She creates fictional and autobiographical images that explore everyday life. By employing tableau and staged scenes of her own family, she blurs the lines between imagination and reality, often adding fantastical elements to everyday scenes. 

Physical Description
A photograph of four children in front of a house entrance. Two girls hold onto the railing and recline on either side. An infant sits on the bottom step, while another young boy stands on the first step, holding a frog in front of his face.
