Julie Grace Immink is a photographer and writer based in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Her working-class upbringing has inspired her documentary work to focus on the socio-economic landscape of subcultures and communities. You can also find her kayaking the wilds of the Midwest or talking to strangers (the stranger, the better).
Julie is an alumnus of Eddie Adams XXXIV. She studied traditional photography techniques at the Art Institute of Philadelphia and participated in workshops with Mary Ellen Mark. Her work has been published in Stranger's Guide, LAist, Argonaut News, LA WEEKLY, Roadtrippers Magazine, AARP, Atlas Obscura, and Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. 

"You have a whimsical street eye that is excellent"

"Julie has a great eye and a better brain"
Don Camera-Photographer

"She freezes time.....an architect of change, stimulating the grey matter through photography; exposing the fact that our minds have  been crusted shut with the everyday mucus that is our routine and forcing the viewers to pry their inner eye open and expose it to the beauty that is: old diner folk smoking cigarettes with coffee-stained teeth"
Abiezer Galloza- Artist
