Joshua Tarplin

Joshua Tarplin (American) collaborates with photographic technology to understand what images are and how images influence humans in using our imagination to build our conception of ourselves and our collectively imagined world. His anxiety stems from the contingency and arbitrary nature of these influences, progressively accumulated like lost codes throughout eons of history. In our time of an accelerating global network of images he works to provide a stress-free point of view of the mysterious claims images make of us (often by reinterpreting possibility within a queer perspective). Josh holds degrees in Art and the History of Art from Yale University, has exhibited nationally and internationally, and lives in Los Angeles with his cameras Wallace, Camille, and Frank.
