I’m super pleased to announce that my latest photo book, Polafornia, is featured in Impossible Project’s Impossible Magazine. I couldn’t be happier! Read the article and look at the pics here.
Polafornia will finally get a belated release party next Saturday on August 26th at Cyan Salong in Oslo. Ingvild and I will be there from 12.00 to 22.00. At 14.00 we’ll give a talk about our trip, if anyone’s interested. The book will be available to purchase, as will postcards and posters. Hope to see you there!
And just one more thing, foto.no has posted an article (in Norwegian) about All the Things a Woman Oughtn’t Do – The Ballad of Zerelda Glanton. Read it here, I think it turned out pretty nice. 🙂
My new photobook, made in collaboration with Ingvild Eiring, is finally available!
Longtime collaborators and friends, model and artist Ingvild Eiring, and photographer and author Julie Loen embark on a week-long trip to California, traveling in a loop from San Francisco, via Sacramento to Yosemite, and back to San Francisco again. Join them on their adventure through a selection of Polaroid pictures, digital photographs, candid snapshots, drawings, and words.
Ingvild and Julie visit Alcatraz without doing the audio tour, encounter a family of skunks by Folsom Lake, deal with an allergy attack after cuddling a rabbit in Sacramento, fall in love with an abandoned trailer home in El Portal, ride horses in Yosemite, raft down the Merced River, discover the original “bollefjoms” at the Palace of Fine Arts, and walk across the Golden Gate Bridge in the fog.

The 180 page book is available in three different editions:
The E-book version of All the Things a Woman Oughtn’t Do – The Ballad of Zerelda Glanton is currently free. Yup, that’s right, no charge. Go pick up your free copy HERE, before I change my mind.
Yeee-haw! The exhibition of images from the photo book I made in collaboration with Ingvild Eiring kicks off at Cyan Salong in Oslo next Friday. Prints, originals and, of course, the book itself will be for sale.
Here’s what y’all need to know:
Launch party: Friday, September the 16th from 18.00.
Talk, yup… that’s right, Ingvild and I will be rambling on about the project on Thursday the 22nd from 19.00.
The exhibition will be up and running for two weeks, with regular hours from Saturday the 17th to Friday the 30th of September. Open Tuesday – Sunday from 12-15.00. Closed on Mondays.
Ingvild and I will be present at the launch party and the talk, and I will be present at the gallery on the weekends (Friday – Sunday). Stop by and and say howdy! 🙂
I did a shoot recently, with model Ingvild Eiring, that was inspired by Siri Pettersen’s wonderful fantasy series The Raven Rings. To my great delight Siri loved the pictures and posted a whole album with images from the shoot on Facebook. To see more of the images head on over to my photo website julieloen.com
We did the shoot in the woods behind my house. I’ve done many shoots there before and never felt creeped out, but this day was different. Before we got started we came across a dead hare on the trail, and when we were ready to shoot a tree fell over close by us – the sound it made was… Well, it sounded like a troll was smashing through the forest. The rest of the day we didn’t hear a single bird, they were all inexplicably gone. But the forest wasn’t quiet, dead trees swayed in the wind, their shrivelled bodies creaking and screaming like something out of a horror movie.
Y’all! I’ll be at the photo festival Fotoscenen in Oslo on Saturday, selling copies of All the Things a Woman Oughtn’t Do – The Ballad of Zerelda Glanton. Take a look at the program, it’s chock-full of interesting lectures and talented photographers.
Y’all! I’ve got great news! Zerelda will get a proper exhibition in September at Cyan Studio in Oslo. All the original polaroids featured in the book will be on display (and for sale) along with a selection of bigger prints (also for sale). I’ll get back to y’all with the details in due time before the event.
AND! All the Things a Woman Oughtn’t Do – The Ballad of Zerelda Glanton is now available at my favourite bookstore in Oslo: Tronsmo AND at Oslo’s darkest and finest fashion haunt: Hevn. Both stores are well worth a visit.
Greet the new year in true cowgrrrl fashion with the Zerelda Glanton Calendar 2016. The calendar features fourteen images (the twelve months + front and back) from the polaroid photobook All the Things a Woman Oughtn’t Do – The Ballad of Zerelda Glanton.
Choose between a variety of holidays to best suit your culture.
Get your calendar here. Safe filter must be turned off to view it – calendar contains images where clothing is not entirely present.
The calendar will only be available until I see fit to pluck it down some time early in the new year, so don’t wait too long to get yours 😉
I know. I know… Everything is about Zerelda these days. Hope y’all ain’t tired of her yet. If you want to know the connection between a Barbie doll in a fighter pilot outfit and the gunslinging babe in the shape of Ingvild Eiring, head on over to Floz Visions, where Zerelda’s been featured along with a bunch of pictures you probably haven’t seen before.
