London-based 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.
Emigrating to the world of photography from the music industry, a 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. Obsessed with light and capturing moments from a young age, it's people, faces, journeys and stories that dominate Matthew's work as he gladly follows it around the world.
Having won the RICS Infrastructure photographer of the year 2016, he was then 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.
Matthew's project 'The Uber Impact' took him around the world, seeking out the faces and stories of those impacted by Uber's arrival across various cities. It was launched in Spring 2018 and was well received across the media and press, which included the BBC writing a feature on the project.
‘PODO’ was launched in April 2019 - showcasing the plight of those surviving with Podoconiosis across rural Ethiopia in 2018. It exhibited in London for two weeks and received national press coverage.
Matthew is proud to have been selected by Lürzers Archive as one of the Top 200 Ad Photographers worldwide for the 2019/20 annual.
