    Twenty Summers – Lost & Found | Michael Joseph Artist Talk
    Date: 2024-05-18     Time: 3 PM : 0 minutes

    Season Eleven Twenty Summers, rooted in Provincetown’s Hawthorne Barn, celebrates artistic freedom, offering resources, residencies, and a platform for originality and innovation, honoring its rich legacy.

    Michael Joseph is a street portrait and documentary photographer. Raised just outside of New York City, his inspirations are drawn from interactions with strangers on city streets and aims to afford his audience the same experience through his photographs. His portraits are made on the street, often unplanned and up close to allow the viewer to explore the immediate and unseen. Themes throughout his portraiture and projects include identity formation, found family, wanderlust, the human journey, the search for equality and human authenticity. His first monograph, “Lost and Found: A Portrait of American Wanderlust”, was published Fall, 2023 (Europe) and will be coming out Spring, 2024 (USA) by Kehrer Verlag.

    Michael has been exhibited nationally with solo shows at Daniel Cooney Fine Art and the Soho Photo Gallery and the FP3 Gallery. He has lectured at the International Center of Photography, the Savannah College of Art and Design, in portraiture classes at the New England School of Photography and taught at the Light Factory. He is a 2023 and 2016 Photolucida Top 50 Photographer, 2020 Photolucida Finalist, and LensCulture Portrait Award Finalist. Michael was named “One of the Top 25 LGBTQ+ Film Photographers You Need to Know” by Analogue Forever magazine in 2021.  He is a recipient of the fellowship in photography from the Massachusetts Cultural Council and a grant from the Peter S. Reed Foundation.
