Joshua Carpenter’s photography is more than just a play of light and shape that reflects a place; his work makes the audience vulnerable to the affects of that place. His images are forceful and layered, but not always beautiful. They reflect a dynamic world in all its serenity and chaos; challenging the viewer to take an active part in the process. The picture finds its conclusion in the audience.

Joshua was born and raised in New England and now lives in Richmond Virginia with his wife and daughter. He is an avid gourmet cook and traveler and these passions are seen in his imagery. Joshua has been published nationally and internationally.

His work garnered this praise from Art Director Arnel Reynon of Target Communications, “His photos captured the context of the assignments while bringing life to the page and never feared experimentation to better the design as a whole. He made the jobs of the designers and the art director much easier.” More succinctly, “His image stopped the page.”

Based in the Mid-Atlantic, Joshua Carpenter is available for advertising, editorial, commercial and assignment work.
