Julia Parris is a photographer, art director, and founder of the Brooklyn-based creative studio, Analog is Heavy. She brings her interdisciplinary background to each project infusing commercial shoots and brand campaigns with strategic thinking and creativity.

We discuss what is real and surreal about living during a pandemic, how extra planning makes both photo shoots and trips to the grocery store better, fostering personal connections in a digital world, the importance of analyzing personal and professional goals with each project, and good advice from the future.

From our Conversations With Quarantined Creatives series.
