PTSD by Julia Fox ~ Opens Tonight in Downtown Los Angeles

PTSD...Is a mental health condition triggered by a terrifying event – either experiencing it or witnessing it. Symptoms may include flashbacks, nightmares and severe anxiety, as well as uncontrollable thoughts about the event.

Julia Fox brings her newest body of photographs to Los Angeles tonight at 3125C The Void at 8pm. The images reveal truth through transgression, focusing on dysfunctional communities of the American South. Fox explores both the vulnerability and hedonism associated with ritualistic Bayou culture, in the process exposing the anxieties and pressures that are central to both the artist's and the subject's experience.

Fox states, “It’s more about evoking an emotional response and curiosity from the viewer. Rather than just taking a pretty picture, I want to show people a reality so far from theirs. And I want them to ask questions about it and feel what I felt. If I’m not able to share my experiences with everyone or else they mean nothing at all.”
