Shell Shock

Julie Beirens (*1994) is a Belgian photographer and writer. She was born in Bruges and raised on a nearby farm. At only ten years old, she decided to become a photographer. Her four-year-old brother was forced to be a model, but he didn’t like that. She also wanted to be an astronaut, but fear of heights put an end to that dream.

At age of eighteen, she reached third place in the preliminary round of the ‘Kunstbende’, a renowned Belgian art contest for young people. At age of nineteen she reached a second place as well as winning several poetry contests. Her first exhibition was held in 2015 and was entitled ‘Imagine’. This was an exhibition of drawings about war and peace. She exhibited “Imagine” four times.

Her latest work, “Shell Shock” is about people of all shapes and sizes, particularly concentrating on psychological well-being and the effects of trauma.
