Justine Parsons grew up in New York City and moved to Paris at age 16 when asked to model. Returning to New York City, she was offered a scholarship to study photography formally at Parsons School of Design and later began assisting legendary fashion photographer Steven Meisel- an education that would carry in to her career as a fashion and portrait photographer. Back to Paris, at the start of her photography career, she had her first break working with Emmanuel Alt, who is now Fashion Editor-in-Chief at Vogue Paris.
Known for her distinctive style and original casting choices, Justine would spend 6 years living and working between Paris and London before heading back to New York where she now splits her time between Austria and Spain. Her work is fed by her passion for cultures as is reflected in her personal projects, and most recently in her coverage of the El Rocio pilgrimage where she was invited by the Andalusian aristocracy to accompany them as a photographer on horseback, shot for Town & Country. Current personal projects include her most recent film script, titled 'The Separatist' and photographic book project titled 'La Mere Patrie'.
Her client list includes Vanity Fair, NY Times Magazine, Allure, GQ, Town & Country, L’Officiel, Jalouse, The Face, Dutch, Tatler, Independent Magazine, Suddeutsche Zeitung, Italian Glamour, Mixte, Galleries Lafayette, Patricia Pepe, Chantelle Lingerie & Max Mara.
