Joshua Deaner (b. 1976 Boston, MA) is an artist whose work is photographically based. He makes compositions, sometimes incorporating text, which are more fine art “stories” than traditional photographic prints. Deaner’s work has been exhibited in numerous galleries and museums and is included in several private collections. Deaner graduated from Rochester Institute of Technology where he received his Associates Degree of Applied Arts and Sciences. The Boston Globe said of one of the exhibitions, “Deaner’s subject matter isn’t the world, but the stray, spiraling paths he wanders as he watches the world.”
