Joshua is a documentary photographer and filmmaker with a focus on slow journalism. Investigating through photography and film the longer-term impact breaking news events have on communities, society and politics.
Joshua began as a field researcher in Sri Lanka in 2015, working for the human rights documentation centre, Inform. As part of a small team led by the activist, Ruki Fernando, he reported on continued human rights violations against the Tamil community. Over the next two years photojournalism became the focus, working internationally on assignments from the Eritrean refugee crises in East Africa to the impact of the earthquake in Nepal.
Filmmaking has taken a more prominent place in recent years working within television production companies and in the creation of short documentaries and videos for charities. Most recently Joshua has produced, filmed, directed and edited a short documentary in Sri Lanka. The film follows the rise in religious violence and Islamophobia since the terror attacks in April 2019, and dhow refugees in particular were singled out and targeted.
Closer to home Joshua explores the impact of social inequality in the UK working for social enterprises and charities with a focus on the wide-ranging impact austerity has had on communities.
