Joseph is a British photographic artist working between London and Bristol. His practice is concerned with social and environmental roles, focusing primarily on our sense of place and how we affect and are affected by the environments we inhabit. Resulting in images which dissect cultural and social identity as well as our relationship with the environment. Working in a documentary style his works play with the narrative embedded within the photograph by presenting positions of both fact and fiction in order to create a playful tension around the meaning embedded in his images. This is often created by bringing an ambiguity to the work and presenting the unfamiliar in the familiar. His long term projects are often drawn from past events or experiences and are created in predominantly rural areas and areas of cultural conflict, using the dense cultural complexity found in the British Isle as his motif.   

These themes have been applied to comissions in fashion as well as portraiture and advertising, bringing a depth of colour and strong use of tone and form, to build complex narratives to the stories he creates.
