“Hong Kong is a very interesting city which blended with Western and Asian culture together. Hong Kong Beauty was a personal project at the beginning, I just wanted to make myself to fall in love with the city and started taking photo every 2-3 days of something eye-catching. After a while i couldn’t stop. The experience is amazing, and it also helps me to create my paintings and calligraphy”.

Julia carefully selected Awagami Unryu inkjet paper to go with her images. Awagami Unryu paper contains long and visible organic swirling Kozo fibers, added soft and classic look to the image.   Julia especially likes the cloud liked pattern  on the paper, and emerge beautifully when the paper is illuminated by the spot light.
