Bio: Julie Douglas is a photo-based artist in Peterborough, Ontario. She has just completed her thesis at the OCAD University, and previously studied at the Haliburton School of The Arts. She has exhibited in Haliburton, Peterborough and Toronto.

The subject of Douglas’ work primarily focuses on both rural and industrial abandonments throughout Ontario. She is interested in documenting the stories of those that seemingly just vanished, and the traces that have been left behind in spaces that are often long forgotten. Douglas is interested in the ephemeral and transient nature of these abandoned buildings. She seeks to document the lives that have been left behind, while capturing the meditative nature of being in these spaces.

Julie currently lives and works out of Peterborough, Ontario.
