Julie Moos (born 1966) is a Canadian photographer[1] and art writer.

Moos' work was included in the 2002 Whitney Biennial[2] at the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York and curated by Lawrence Rinder. Moos's work has been shown at the Birmingham (Alabama) Museum of Art, the Honolulu Museum of Art Spalding House (formerly known as The Contemporary Museum, Honolulu), the Mint Museum of Art, Norton Museum of Art, the Renaissance Society of Chicago and elsewhere.

Moos's approach to photography explores worlds of opposites. By pairing subjects side by side in various series including "Friends and Enemies" and "Domestics", she allows the viewer to compare individuals through an unrestrained formalism that asks us to see the equality of all people.

In a series titled "Monsanto", Moos photographs American farmers and how they work independently of big agribusiness. This series is based on James Agee's article "Let Us Now Praise Famous Men", published as a book with photographs by Walker Evans.

Julie Moos is the wife of contemporary art curator David Moos.
