From public bathhouses throughout Germany to sentos in Japan, Julia Baier has cultivated a love for water. Julia found her passion for the liquid element and subsequently gained recognition for her work. Her imagery is characterized by a poetical view of reality that adds an aspect of mystery to the black and white photography. The figurativeness of her depictions is often backed by a playful discourse with the perspective she finds and chooses. The viewer easily recognizes that the pictures derive their origin from the genre of the genuine photo reportage. Providing a good sense for visual humor, Julia Baier still manages to approach the intimacy of bathing with due sensitivity.
