JULIA CUMES

I’m a South African-born photographer based on Cape Cod, Massachusetts. I strive to create photographs one can’t turn away from–photos that are powerful and capture in a unique way this extraordinary world we live in. I am particularly invested in exploring stories about the struggles women and girls face as well as wildlife conservation and education and have worked on many projects focused on these issues in Africa and East Asia.

I first fell in love with photography as a teenager in apartheid-era South Africa when I began shooting black and white film and printing my own work. Since then, I’ve completed a B.A. at Brandeis University, an M.F.A. in writing at Cornell University, a Masters in Photojournalism at Syracuse University’s Newhouse School and have been working as a photographer ever since.

 

Over the course of my career, I’ve photographed for a variety of newspapers, magazines, non-profit organizations, businesses, corporations, and private clients. My work has appeared in publications such as the New York Times, Boston Globe, The Chicago Tribune, National Geographic, the London Times as well as local publications such as Cape Cod Magazine, South Shore Living, etc. I’ve also worked on numerous long term personal projects and my work has been widely exhibited on Cape Cod and elsewhere.
