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 three children in front of a house. Taken from inside, looking out; a young boy eats an ice cream sandwich in the foreground. Two young girls stand on square columns at the end of the steps leading to the house, framing the boy and mirroring one another's pose.
