As a photographer and photojournalist, Julie Millowick strives to capture moments that will change people’s perspective on life. She is a proponent of the true power of photographic images, and as a senior lecturer for La Trobe University, she teaches with this philosophy in mind. Julie conducts classes for students online in the area of Photojournalism. In addition to her work at the university, she owns and operates Julie Millowick Photo, a vehicle for her own photographic art. Julie has been pursuing photography professionally for more than four decades. Her work has appeared in numerous one person exhibitions, group shows and publications. It is also in the collections of the National Gallery of Australia, the National Gallery of Victoria, The State Library of Victoria, The National Portrait Gallery, Warrnambool Gallery, Castlemaine Art Gallery, and the Bendigo Art Gallery, to name a few.
Julie was recently appointed Chair of the Castlemaine State Festival. The next festival will take place 13-22 March 2015. Over the coming months, Julie will deliver numerous presentations about her newest publication, “Remembrance: 100 Years, 100 Memorials, 100 Australian Stories”. Julie is also a member of MAP Group (Many Australian Photographers). MAP members undertake documentary projects on a pro bono basis. During the Castlemaine State Festival in March 2015, Julie will hold two exhibitions. Both will be located at the Old Castlemaine Gaol. In the Governor’s Residence, photographs from the book “Remembrance” will be on display. In the Gaol itself, there will be an exhibition of photographs she made during the 1970s to reflect the theme of the CSF15, Before and Beyond.
