Josh Cooper

Statement

Documentary photographer fascinated by people. My graduate project ‘The Observer’s Book of The Street’ (ongoing) entices observation into that which we often miss. The collection of bold portraits attempt to be honest and candid with a somewhat obsessive methodology underlying the work, shooting repeatedly across four countries.

My educational background in the arts has informed the development of my style and voice within photography. A common theme within my work is the portrayal of relationships between individuals whether that be in a stricter documentary sense or more conceptual.
