A close up of Julia thorne with her camera up to her eye.

Born in the city of Bath and raised by a historian and an artist, Julia Thorne moved to Liverpool in 2001 to study Egyptology at the University of Liverpool. After meeting her photographer husband, she made the city her home and fell in love with photography herself. She now mixes her two loves of ancient Egypt and photography, creating images that allow artefacts to flaunt their beauty and have their own space in which to breathe. She specialises in using a macro lens to photograph tiny objects or small details on larger objects, bringing to life minutiae that can otherwise be easily missed by the human eye.
