Julia Luckett Photography

Julia Luckett, a fine art photographer from Shelburne, is the recipient of an Artist Development Grant from the Vermont Arts Council (VAC). Luckett’s work focuses on portraiture and photojournalism.

Artist Development Grants support artists at all stages of their careers by providing matching funds for activities that serve to enhance an artist’s career through arts skills training and business development. An artist must delicately balance creating art with managing and promoting their work. The grant will enable Luckett to invest in her business operations, while continuing to create intriguing images that tell authentic stories.

Framed with striking compositions, Luckett’s work tells stories both international and local. Most recently, she traveled to Ethiopia’s Omo River Valley to assist Jane Baldwin with Kara Women Speak. In 2013, she traveled to Nicaragua with local non-profit Food 4 Farmers to document their work. The results of that trip were recently displayed at Burlington’s Maglianero café.

Luckett has worked locally photographing fine art weddings, on promotional material for local entrepreneurs and musicians, as well as individual portrait sessions. Despite traveling, Luckett always holds a place in her heart for her hometown of Shelburne. Her photographs are in several private collections throughout New England, and she regularly publishes her new work on her website.
