Yulia Yushchik (1983) studied journalism and communication science. While working as a news reporter and filmmaker, she developed a strong interest in documentary photography. She later got into analogue photography and completed the Dark Room course at the FOTOfactory Institute in Amsterdam. Today, she often takes her old Nikon film camera as a companion when she travels alone.
The work exhibited at De Balie is a selection from the Berlin/Andalusia series that is an unintentional experiment with a double exposure effect captured on film.
The series was born when a film roll brought from a road trip through Andalusia was forgotten and shot another time, a year later, in Berlin. The photographer ended up with a delightful series of images that combined specific beauty of these contrasting places.
The images organically fuse urban geometric shapes and street art of Berlin with soft lines of Andalusian landscapes, bright walls of Catholic churches, and wild southern vegetation. When closely looked at, every single image unfolds a meaningful narrative by connecting seemingly contradictory elements in a surprising way.
The works are for sale.
