Raised on a working farm on the border between England and Wales there was no immediate contact with photography. After travelling around Europe for two years in an attempt to become a professional cyclist Joseph had to change course after a career ending injury occurred. Returning to his home town he began to look back on his interests in art history and classical painting before being introduced to photography by a high school friend in 2011. Since this meeting Joseph returned to school to complete a BA in Photographic Art, receiving a first class honours from the University of Westminster in 2015. He now works as a photographic assistant and continues to develop and mature his own practice. Joseph's work revolves around how we take influence from the landscape, how it marks us and how we are marked by it.
