Retouching an impactful photographic series for Julia Fullerton-Batten
Feral Children is a beautiful and impactful project by photographer Julia Fullerton-Batten, taking on the challenge of trying to capture her thoughts photographically about the isolation under which young children find themselves.
“I chose 15 cases to portray, these range from a girl who as a toddler was confined by her parents to a potty chair for ten years to that of a baby boy who was stolen by a leopardess and found three years later in the company of her and her latest cubs”, explains Julia.
The idea behind the collection of images was not to replicate the exact scenes, but to interpret and duplicate the feelings and actions of each feral child living their experiences. It goes without saying that the result is a collection of images that are both fascinating and thought-provoking, and it’s a project that Happy Finish artists Nick Nedeljkovic and Stefano Cherubini were proud to be a part of.
The work was extremely well received, and was featured as part of BBC Culture.
