Biography

Julia Calfee

American-born photographer Julia Calfee has spent most of her professional life living and working in Europe, and is fluent in French. She majored in journalism at NYU and studied art history at the Sorbonne in Paris. Her first book, Photogénèse, was published by the Joan Miro Foundation.

From 1996 to 2002, she focused on Mongolia, where she led a caravan to bring medicine to remote areas. During this time she also documented life in Mongolian prisons for a relief organization, and photographed the blight of poverty in Ulan Bator. Over these years she also took pictures of traditional reindeer herders in the north, particularly one female shaman. The experiences with the shaman were published in a limited-edition catalogue called Mountains Spirits of Mongolia, published by the Richard Liu Foundation. In 2003, Spirits and Ghosts: Journeys Through Mongolia was published by PowerHouse, New York. This book explores the transitions and changes in Mongolia since 1996, touching upon the obstinate ritual and beliefs of this country still steeped in the murkiness of the post- Communist era, and awkwardly adapting to a new democratic system. A series of exhibitions followed these publications in New York, London, Paris, Milan and Brussels.

She then began to photograph what she refers to as the New China, which has included documenting the private lives of a new class of people who are suddenly extremely wealthy as well as the urbanscapes that have arisen with the overall economic changes of recent years. She has also documented the new contemporary art scene in Beijing, principally the 798 Factory, and has spent time in the northwest and southwest of China, where Central Asian influence still dominates despite the march of Chinese influence ever westward. In these areas she also found evidence of a never-changing China, where some groups of people hold on to ways of life seemingly unaltered since 1,000 years ago. She is conversant in Mongolian and has cultivated a large network of contacts in Asia and Europe, from shepherds to CEOs.

For the past three years, when not in Brussels or Beijing, Julia Calfee has been living mainly in New York City's Hotel Chelsea, where she is documenting the state of mind that has existed and still exists in that unique place. Calfee's work has appeared in publications worldwide, including the New York Times, Time, Business Week, London Sunday Times, Paris Match, Guardian, Elle Italia, Elle Japan Marie Claire, Paris Photo, Digital Photography, Corriere della Sera, and Photo Eight. She is represented by Polaris Images.

Photograph by Julia Calfee

"People are always asking me what it's like to live in the Chelsea
Hotel. Not always easy. There are times I felt like a fly caught in
a spider's web, at risk of being eaten alive if I made the wrong
move. ..."

New Rich in China

Since early 2004, I have had access to the private lives of
the new wave of wealthy young Chinese. In the new China,
chateaus have replaced teahouses as the preferred symbols
of status.



 
Shamanism

Shamanism

Through day-to-day living with a female shaman over the
course of five years, I became intertwined in her whole way
of life as a bridge between the spiritual world and the human
world. In other places, with other shamans, I have found
they all fill the same need: acting as mediator to heal the
suffering caused by disharmony between these two realms.
