Joseph Blair (AU)


Born 1995, Melbourne, Australia
Lives and works Melbourne, Australia

Joseph Blair (b. 1995) works between photographic, mixed media, and moving image mediums. Blair’s practice speaks on the technologically mediated existence and explores the concerns that are inherent in this terrain. Blair’s work has a keen focus on the social and emotional consequences arising from our collective interactions which occur as a result of new technologies and online spaces. Key areas of focus include surveillance and security, the eroding of geographic boundaries in the digital sphere, and the dynamics between the natural and electronic environments. Blair’s work navigates this liminal space/self by grappling with raw and vibrant imagery taken from both the obscure and the mundane.

PHOTO Australia respectfully acknowledges the traditional custodians of the lands upon which we work and live, and the rich and diverse Indigenous cultures across what is now called Australia. For over 60,000 years, Indigenous arts and culture have thrived on this sacred land, and we honour Elders and cultural leaders past and present. This was, and always will be, Aboriginal land.
