Julia Duckworth is a photographer well disguised as a food scientist, nutritionist and wine enthusiast.
Julia was born in Boston, Massachusetts and raised in Savannah, Georgia. She is the third child and only daughter of Marilyn (née Redmond) and Jonathan Coleman Glen, a well-respected Gastroenterologist. She is of African, Native American Indian (Apache), and Irish/ Scottish heritage. Julia had a creative childhood full of dance, painting, music and photography. Julia was a dancer in Savannah Danse Theatre, Columbia City and Ballet South where she studied under Karena Brock-Carlyle (Principal dancer of the American Ballet Theatre sharing roles with such stars as Natalia Makarova, Cynthia Gregory and Carla Fracci partnering with stars such as Rudolph Nureyev, Ivan Nagy, Fernando Bujones, and Mikhail Baryshnikov). Julia has danced in 2 World Premiere Ballets, Dracula: Ballet with a Bite and Where the Wild Things Are.
At the age of 14, Julia received her first camera, a Minolta 35mm SLR. She took it on a family vacation to Maine and Vermont and by the time she returned home her interest in photography was enough to lead her to purchase wide angle and telephoto lenses. She began photographing parks and coastal areas in and around Savannah and developed her own film and prints. Even at an early age, her work showed strong artistic merit. She received 2 photography awards before completing prep school. Later Julia attended Vanderbilt University and studied Psychology before pursuing Masters Degrees in Food Science and Nutrition.
Julia’s passion for photography leads her to many interesting places around the world. The compositions are often times ordinary subjects shown in an unlikely way. From the classic serenity of black and white to captivating color images, she pursues landscapes and urban landscapes with equal creativity and enthusiasm.
Julia is a Chartered Scientist (CSci) and Fellow in the Institute of Food Science and Technology (FIFST). She currently resides in London, UK where she provides technical leadership and expertise of Food Safety, Regulatory Affairs and Sustainability.
