Julia Maloof Verderosa has an eye for beauty, whatever the species.

She began her career photographing musicians in London’s Camden Lock while studying at

After earning her BFA in Photography at Cornell University, she returned to London where her
celebrity portraiture was commissioned by international publications and record companies.
Her years in Europe included teaching at Speos Photography School in Paris, and exhibitions
in England, France, and Japan.

When awarded a scholarship to film school, Julia returned to NYC. After a year doing
production design on several shorts, she refocused on still photography. Her rapport with her

Clients include British Vogue, Sunday Times Magazine, Time-Out Magazine Musician Magazine, Hill Holiday, Fordham University, The American Lung Association, Sanofi Pasteur, and The New York Public Theater, and local favorite Matters Magazine.

With this series of animal portraits, Julia celebrates the piece of the wild that lives in our homes, and the enchanting creatures found outside our own back doors.
Pet Wants Soma will be hosting Julia’s work.
