Josh needs 12 people who have an interest in climate change. Members of the Clarence Valley community are invited to be part of a series of composed portraits which look at our understanding and opinions about climate change.

Each participant will receive a high-resolution copy of their digital portrait after posing. Josh would also like to record an interview to combine with the video or still portrait Co if the sitter agrees Co or they may prefer to be recorded for Josh to use in a sound collage.

Josh works principally in photography and new media.

After completing a Doctorate in Media Arts at the Australian National University in 2010 on how responsive environments may be created to evoke environmental responsibility, he has carried out portrait studies through many artist in residencies and six solo exhibitions in Sydney, Canberra and Perth.

Josh is working between the Grafton Regional Gallery Studio Space, the Link Grafton Shopping World and various river locations throughout the Clarence Valley.

He is presenting an artist talk at the gallery, on Saturday, September 29, at 11am.
