Julia Calfee Messages

Messages covers six different countries in Asia and Europe to which Calfee did not just travel, but where she actually lived for many months or even years, searching and finding special people connected to special energies. In many cases these people became her friends and permitted her to photograph freely in very intimate circumstances. Pursuing her quest as an artist with the simple tool of black and white analogue photography, she produces unusual humanistic images which lead the reader to reflect on these other worldly moments. Calfee demonstrates that comparable cultural legacies not only prevail today as they did hundreds of years ago but are revered in ways that go beyond the explanation of geographical locations.

Julia Calfee, an artist whose media are photography, video, audio recordings, and writings, lives and works in Europe and Asia. Her books include A Glacier’s Requiem (Kehrer 2016), Inside: The Chelsea Hotel (2008), Spirits and Ghosts (2003), and Photogeneses / Têtes (1995).
