About the Artist

Untitled photo

Juliet Haas is a Sacramento, California based photographer, curator, Open Show Sacramento producer, and founder of critique group PHOTO Sacto. Drawn to solitude and detritus, shape, light and darkness, dramatic weather and cinematic landscape, Juliet’s imagery focuses on finding the beauty hiding behind the light, on the edges of shadow, evoking a sense of isolation. An isolation she has always felt even enveloped in the company of others. It is these isolated moments of dense emotion that inspire her vision.
