About Julius Pictures

All pictures presented in this website are original works of Julius Yls which are carefully selected to compliment your living environment space. All prints are printed using a Chromogenic Color method on Fuji or Kodak photographic paper to ensure the highest quality that you can enjoy for a long time.

These pictures are all "naturally" taken: no choreographed scene, which represents the true real moment and might not ever happen again. It also "Organically" taken: using a manual camera to reflect the photographer own judgment and artistic view on lightings, composition and focus for each scene.


Julius Yls is a self taught photographer with mere curiosity for different lands and keen eye on elegant composition, which often convey an atmosphere and go far beyond description.
