    Raised as the oldest of nine children and a mother to three, Blackmon finds inspiration for her series Domestic Vacations in the natural chaos of family home-life. Both autobiographical and fictional, her images seek out the 'fantastic elements of everyday lives, both imagined and real.' (www.julieblackmon.com)

    A book on the series Domestic Vacations will be published by Radius Books in May 2008.
