Julia is well known for her distinctive style of photography that is epitomised by her use of unusual locations, highly creative settings, street-cast models and accented with cinematic lighting. Her work is steeped with narrative and story telling, this recent exploration into the Thames is no exception. She is in the process of choosing, investigating and photographing a selection of cultural and historical narratives from along its banks.

Taking time to research each portrait carefully and then painstakingly create the image, Fullerton-Batten has created an astonishing portrait of the river at the heart of the country's capital. Continuing her work of storytelling, the series highlights the role and the significance of the River Thames in the multi-faceted history of our nation.
