Julie McCarter is a fine art photographer located in the Washington DC area. 

The images in this portfolio are from a new series entitled, Sanctuary.

When life delivered a significant amount of grief in a short period of time, Julie turned to mindful creativity to ask questions about our connection to those who are no longer in physical form. Using ancestral objects, in concert with Mother Nature, she photographs the wisdom that came forth in whispers and echoes. 

Julie studied fine art photography at The Academy of Art University in San Francisco, and she holds a Master's of Social Welfare from the University of California, Berkeley. She leads workshops on topics related to emotional wellness, mindfulness and expressive photography.
