Educated at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music, Jules Ober has brought her musical sensitivity into the visual world as an image-maker working between Australia & Europe across platforms as diverse as fine art printmaking, photography, film & multimedia production.
Jules and Pierre-Jacques Ober have turned their creative energy to books, using a unique method of story-telling that uses photographs of figurines in miniature sets to create ‘paper movies’.
Their first book, The Good Son, has been hailed as ‘having the power of a timeless fable’ by The New York Times and has won prestigious prizes and awards in the US and France. In Australia it has been shortlisted for the CBCA Picture Book of the Year and is the winner of the NSW Premier’s Young People’s History Prize.
Jacqueline – a soldier’s daughter is their second children’s book.
