Description

After her cat Alex died on July 19, 2018, photographer Julia Schlosser set out four sheets of 11 × 14 inch cyanotype paper in the sun and laid Alex’s body on top. Alex (Alex’s body) is an editioned print based on the resulting photogram created, and is reproduced to the original’s exact size.

Julia Schlosser, MA, MFA, is a Los Angeles-based artist, art historian, and educator. Her artwork elucidates the multilayered relationships formed between people and their pets. Her writing and research interests focus on contemporary photographic artwork that depicts animals’ lives and deaths. She curated the exhibition Remembering Animals: Rituals, Artifacts and Narratives, 2018, and chaired the 2017 inaugural Seeing with Animals Conference. She is a lecturer at California State University, Northridge and Citrus College where she teaches photography and the history of photography.
