Photographic Artist


Joshua Turner is a photographic artist creating narratives that contemplate the intersection between the landscape and the individual. Investigation into the individual’s interaction with landscapes offers an intimate perspective from which to navigate social and cultural themes and issues. The imagery is built on a post-documentary framework that explores the subject from various perspectives, providing further insight into each narrative.
