Julia Hetta

Swedish, 1972–present

Hetta’s photographs provide a glimpse of an alternative world, rich with the romance and quietude associated with classical painting. Working almost exclusively with natural light and long exposure times, Hetta imbues her subjects with a sense of serenity and power. Her use of light, color and texture transforms her fashion photographs into compositions of timeless enchantment.

Hetta is a graduate of the renowned Gerrit Rietveldt Art Academy in Amsterdam. Her work has since then been shown in exhibitions in Europe and the US. In 2014, Hetta’s work was featured in the FOAM exhibition, Don’t Stop Now: Fashion Photography Next, showcasing the most exciting next-generation photographers working in fashion today. Her editorial clients include Vogue, AnOther, T Magazine and Acne Paper and her clients include Gucci, Dior, Hermès and Jil Sander.
