Matthew Joseph is an award-winning photographer whose commercial work sees him shooting across the advertising, editorial and corporate industries for brands, creative agencies, publications and selected NGOs.
An obsession with light and moments has followed Matthew for many years - people, faces, journeys and stories, occupying his lens the most. Emigrating to the world of photography from the music industry, his bold and cinematic approach to his subjects and their environment strives to evoke emotion, whilst retaining an honest authenticity that he hopes will provoke a reaction, thought or discussion.
Matthew won the RICS Infrastructure photographer of the year 2016 and was recently awarded 1st place at the 2017 Art Gemini Prize PhotoX competition. The winning image was taken from his portrait series 'River People', which made it to a prestigious solo exhibition in Westminster, London. His work received national press coverage on TV, radio and in the newspapers, as well as being recommended by Time Out.
Matthew's latest project 'aGenda' made him a finalist in the 2017 AOP awards. and was first exhibited in August 2017, on London's famous South Bank before visiting two other venues across the capital.
Proudly selected by Lürzers Archive as one of the Top 200 Ad Photographers worldwide for the 2017/18 annual.
Matthew is London-based but gladly follows his work around the world.
