Stages of Decay

May 2013

Julia Solis as mistress of ceremonies
Julia Solis is an artist whose medium is herself and her camera. These two aspects are entangled in their love for the stage and the theatricality allowed by the imagination. In her recently published book are photographs of all manner of performance spaces from a variety of eras and regions. In her eyes, they are all inexorably linked through the magic that their spaces evoke, each of them beckoning one’s fantasies to unfold.
