<i>Domestic Vacations</i> is one of the most enjoyable photo books I've looked at in a long time. It rewards repeated readings; every time there's some new details that catches your eye.

I discovered this book on my neighbor's coffee table and couldn't put it down. I just ordered my first five copies and will soon order more. Julie's photographs provided me with a huge artistic epiphany. Her work revealed to me the male centric lens of the vast majority of domestic sphere artwork I have viewed in my life: the nice, scrubbed children ready for dad to come home. Julie's photographs depict a world that is more familiar to me as a mom. She captures the chaos and wild absurdities of daily life in a family. And she does it beautifully. I am in love with her work and have been telling everyone I know about it. I really can't get enough.
Julie Hemming Savage (not Karl Savage, as noted above), author of Women Making America

I had heard and met Julie Blackmon in 2008 at THE LOOK 3 FESTIVAL OF THE PHOTOGRAPH in Charlottesville, VA.

She was funny and the shown images - had all laughing. This was a pre-release presentation by a new photo imprint publisher.

The house in the book is her family's and she creates a lot of light in her "look". Her husband is also a successful author. Her kids and friends are her troupe of players.

I bought the book for my neighbor's 42nd birthday (second week of July - 2008) but due to distribution troubles - it took Amazon 8 weeks to deliver the book. That became a bad joke between us....

I'd buy it again for myself or a Mom's gift - a great American home-life bit of work....
