imagine this. you spend a good part of your life moving in one direction and then all of a sudden. you hurl down a different path.
that’s how we’d like to think of joseph ford – a british photographer who started out studying french and italian at the university of cambridge and the ecole normale supérieure in paris but eventually turned into a photographer.
and thank heavens he made that change. joesph is now known as a photographer who keeps things fresh and brings an interesting perspective to everyday life.
in his series, titled ‘knitted camouflage’ he teamed up with friend and knitter nina dodd to create a humorous amalgamation of fabric and concrete.
they created custom hand-knit sweaters and placed them in front of urban landscapes. and the results sure did bring a smile to our face.
joseph also collaborated with french street artist monsieur chat who painted one of his trademark cats on the wall of a run down factory. this formed the background for one of the photographs in the series.
