Julie Gang grew up in Buffalo, New York. The seventh child of nine and the youngest of five girls, Julie loved to walk around with her film-less Brownie camera snapping “photographs” of everyone and everything. Inspired by children’s inhibitions, she began photographing children in high school. Having a large extended family with plenty of kid “models”, there was an instant comfort zone. She continued her photographic studies at Rochester Institute of Technology where she met her husband, still life photographer Jim Huibregtse. They have two children, Emma, and Clyde. They live in Tribeca New York City. Julie finds that children are beautifully pure as subjects, and by working with them, she is able to bring her vision to fruition. A colleague once said, “ I always know when I am looking at a Julie Gang photograph, because I can see Julie in their eyes.”
