Josh Adam Jones (b.1995) is a British editorial, advertising and lifestyle photographer. His personal work often centres around stories of misrepresented places and the people who live there. From ageing Irish populations in British towns and cities to the expatriate communities of Oman, Josh hopes to facilitate conversations about identity, home and interculturalism through his work. In his most recent ongoing series (Sometimes A Silence Will Cut Through Sounds), Josh explores the therapeutic applications of photography in response to his grandfather passing away and a family history of mental health problems. He completed a BA (First Class Hons) in Photography in 2018 and graduated with an MA in Photography at UWE Bristol in 2020.

He has been commissioned by Ffotogallery (Cardiff) and British Council for The Place I Call Home: an international project and travelling exhibition. His work has been displayed at Stal Gallery (Muscat), Copeland Gallery (London), Summerhall (Edinburgh) and featured in publications such as British Journal of Photography, It’s Nice That and Harper’s Bazaar Arabia. Recently, Josh founded Look & Learn – a series of community-focussed events centred on mental health, wellbeing and photography.
