The selection of images in Joseph’s gallery represents the edgier side of his work. Documentation of urban life and the scenarios that occur in this space are what inspire these images. Not everything is beautiful and polished. In most cases, beauty lies beneath the grit. Sometimes, it just needs to be presented in a certain way in order for others to get and eventually appreciate it. Limited color palettes reminiscent of rust, dirt, coffee, spices and all of the other forgotten elements in life take new form in his work. These forms are illustrated, single-frame stories ranging from riding on an overcrowded, musty bus to the challenges of climbing the steps of success and the pitfalls involved in doing so.
