About

Giulietta Coates’ depicts the unsettling nature of loss and beauty, dread and longing in her landscape photographs. Perceptive to the non-apparent, being and non-being, she speaks of this longing as feeling like nostalgia, but not for something once had and has since been lost, but more a nostalgia for what never was. For Giulietta, this void sets up a kind of death space, where connection and intimacy are longed for but remain forever elusive. Her method then, is to have ‘conversations’ with individual motifs – a rock, a pool of water, a wooden stump – allegories for wider narratives that speak of our mysterious relationship to the ‘otherness’ of beauty, and of the natural world in the face of our own mortality. Seeing her language as essentially aligned with Romanticism, Giulietta now feels that photography is the medium of death and longing. Giulietta lives and works in South of France and has a Master degree in Fine Art from the Royal College of Art, London.
