SLAVE ISLAND - IN PRODUCTION
Slave Island is a documentary that deals with the delicate topic of slave trading between families, according to principles of Sumbanese culture and the Marapu religion. Rina was sold for cattle and sent abroad as a child, simply because she was born as someone else's property. Brought back by Catholic nuns after many years of abuse in Malaysia, she now faces the people who stood against her freedom.

Grensgevallen Art Magazine Kunstkrant NL
"Pure photography in exhibition 'Grensgevallen'. This series offers a wide variety of images and remains infectious to watch. It is photography at its most fresh and pure form. The photos last, not only as a series but also individually."
Amsterdam Jazz portraits De Singel International Art Campus BE
"Photos that summarize their fined ambiance of jazz concerts, mastered in black and white. Lots of potential, ambition, and courage."
Jan Jasper Tamboer, culture-critic. Parool Daily Newspaper NL
"She comes, she sees. Photographer Julia M. Free needs a few chances to isolate exactly the image that she has in mind. From a creative vision to
realizing her ideas in a very personal way. Julia has guts and differs from the usual. For example, showed at the Belgian journalistic medium Apache.be, for which they made a run from her own perspective on the impact of the Olympic Games on London. The series of portraits of jazz musicians is remarkable. Julia is currently working on an oeuvre in the demanding surroundings of the European Commission in Brussels."
