Julia Reinhart’s career has never followed a straight line, but has always focused on pursuing a deeper meaning in her work while using both her strong analytical and highly creative talents. An avid musician all the way through college, she studied electrical engineering to get a more profound understanding of how the electronics she was using to make the music actually worked. The hunger to understand and to learn through hands-on experience started early. At the age of 7 she took her father’s transistor radio apart, as she wanted to know where the announcer lived … needless to say that undertaking also included the much harder lesson of putting the radio back together when she found nobody home.
Both in her professional work and her spare time, especially during her travels, Julia always carries a camera to photograph people and areas around her. While she never went formally to school for this, she did get hands-on training from an early age from her father, a professional photographer. She did much of his dark room work, developing films, running off copies of black and white and color enlargements for many of his images. When Julia started to take her own photos, he’d critique her work, discuss cropping and object selection with his daughter as her eye developed. The photo galleries, while containing merely her most recent (digitally available) work, show the result of a 30 year journey behind a camera.
In 2007 Julia embarked on a trip around the world and started a blog, called On Globetrotting to allow friends and family to follow along the journey as she was on the road.
