Lives and works in Stockholm, Sweden

Julia Peirone is an artist working mainly with photography. She is best known for her portraits of young girls that are deprived of the disguise of gestures and facial expressions and positioned in a kind of nakedness of uncontrollability– and celebrated for the strength of their vulnerability. Her works has been shown in several solo- and group exhibitions in Sweden and abroad and are represented in collections as Moderna Museet, Kiasma and Göteborgs Konstmuseum.
