About - Juliet Haas

About the Artist

Juliet Haas is a Sacramento, CA-based photographer, curator, Open Show Sacramento producer and founder of critique group PHOTO Sacto.

After nearly 20 years working in the photographic and studio production communities in Los Angeles in January 2014 she won her first award as a Finalist in the Emerging Focus competition exhibiting at PHOTO LA and speaking about her work publicly for the first time as a presenter with Open Show Los Angeles #23. That same year she joined Open Show Los Angeles as co-producer and in December 2014 she began working as Project Manager with Your Daily Photograph who she recently worked with as Guest Curator for a Sacramento segment of the Daily. 

Juliet's imagery focuses on finding the beauty hiding behind the light, on the edges of shadow. Drawn to solitude and detritus, shape, light and darkness, dramatic weather and emotion, Juliet’s work evokes a feeling of isolation. An isolation she has always felt even enveloped in the company of others. A feeling of being left behind, abandoned, dropped, silent. It is these isolated moments of dense emotion that bring her solace and inspire her vision.

Select Awards include Jurors/Audience Choice Awards for her image Owens Lookout, Week 2 - 2018 SAC Open Studios Tour; Finalist and Honorable Mention for her image Surveilled, which is published on page 42 of the Photographer’s Forum hard cover book Best of Photography 2018;  "Solo Series: Three Points of View" featuring her series Marionettes and Ghosts of Other Vision that exhibited in the Main Gallery at Viewpoint Photographic Art Center August 6 to September 7, 2019.
