Questions to Eb
How would you summarize your art in one sentence?
An exploration of “Self” and other obscure subjects.
Why do most works don’t look like photographs?
All works are based on photographs. The difference is how the camera is used: exposure, motions, focus etc. In addition, works are often digitally enhanced to achieve the desired result.

In the realm of visual storytelling, Julius Eb transcends the boundaries of conventional photography, inviting viewers into a realm where meaning, inspiration, and provocation converge. His artistic journey unfolds as a distinctive departure from the ordinary, where details are distilled, and colors resonate in symphonic vibrancy or serene duotones.
A maestro in translating contemporary photography into the evocative realm of Abstract Realism, Eb’s recent exploration into long exposure photography elevates the ordinary, condensing moments into singular, profound images that encapsulate the essence of up to four seconds.
With a rich background in journalism, strategic communication, and photography, Eb’s artistic narrative is fundamentally about storytelling. For each project, he meticulously crafts a visual language that serves as a unique vessel for the narratives he seeks to convey.
Originating from Germany, Eb’s professional journey has taken him to places rarely found on holiday itineraries: Kosovo, Myanmar, Sudan, Nigeria, Nepal, Afghanistan, Albania, and more. These diverse locales, their cultures, and, most significantly, their people become the wellspring of inspiration for Eb’s work. While his subject matter spans a wide spectrum, Eb’s primary focus lies in capturing the intricacies of human life and the societies that shape it.
This website stands as a curated showcase, offering a glimpse into Julius Eb’s captivating body of work—an exploration of the extraordinary within the ordinary, a testament to the diverse tapestry of the human experience, and an invitation to immerse oneself in the rich narratives woven through his lens.
