Josh’s work seeks the inner thoughts in which we do not share in order to avoid protest. After developing a strong connection with his heritage through archiving historic photographs and other family relics, Josh continues to explore the vernacular, allowing him to form relationships and a space in which he feels visible. The current body of work entitled ‘Silence’ aims to distinguish a sense of belonging within a dysfunctional family. Working with both photography and hand-made printing techniques, the work captures an essence of feeling invisible to those who are closest to us as we grow up, yet are unaware. Experiencing depression from both trauma and loss within his childhood, Josh uses various mediums as a form of self-therapy.
