Julia Blaukopf has worked as a photographer and creative partner with organizations and businesses in Copenhagen, Kenya, Ghana, Lithuania and throughout the US. In 2005 Blaukopf worked with a community-run tree reforestation project in Kenya. A year later she traveled to Ghana to photograph for Women in Progress, a women's empowerment organization. In the Summer of 2009 Julia traveled to Lithuania to photograph for the Summer Literary Seminars, a two week writing workshop. Her images of intimate moments between families, strangers in the city and local workers are aimed at creating an alternative documentary.
The photographs have exhibited in Copenhagen, as well as nationally, in New York, Philadelphia, Balitmore, and Portland, Oregon. Julia has been honored with the New Courtland Fellowship, the First Person Arts Fellowship, the Center for Emerging Artists Fellowship, The Camera Club of New York Resident Artist Award, the Oregon College of Art & Craft Resident PhotographerԳ Award, Marymount College Resident Photography Award, and a Transcultural Arts Award.
