Making of Julie Blackmon’s Fake Weather

Get a rare glimpse into the making of Julie Blackmon’s Homegrown series. In this video, Blackmon details the story behind Fake Weather, a playfully staged scene inspired by the hotter than normal winter in her hometown of Springfield, Missouri during the time when the term “fake news” found its way into the mainstream. Before she knew it, Blackmon found herself with 90 gallons of fake snow and her nieces ready to enjoy the icy scene. Fake Weather also comments on the increasing temperatures during winter months due to climate change. Fake Weather, along with additional work from Blackmon’s Homegrown series, are included in the current exhibition Fever Dreams at Fotografiska New York.
