As a social documentary photographer from Cheltenham, Josh Adam Jones’ practice seeks to communicate stories about often misrepresented places and those who live there. From the aging Irish populations of U.K towns and cities, to the expatriate communities of a lesser known Middle Eastern country, Josh hopes to facilitate conversations about identity, home and interculturalism through his work.
Spreading his time between working as a photographic assistant or on commissions, Josh also works on and disseminates self-funded projects through the means of publication. The British Journal of Photography, It’s Nice That and Then There Was Us have provided a continued platform for communicating his stories, both online and in print.
Josh is now making work whilst studying a part-time MA course in Photography and has recently been involved with a collaborative commission from the British Council & Ffotogallery: The Place I Call Home. This joint project has enabled Josh to continue making work in line with similar themes investigated in XO and has provided a worldwide exhibition platform in which to showcase the work.
