Click to preview i sell fish. photo book

This book is a glimpse into my world and an attempt to capture it, a culmination of my work to date. Throughout the 350 pages I have created a visual journey using traditional photographic methods mixed with writings, photocopies, video stills and found objects. The book moves like a poem created with my unique form of story telling. Perhaps “i sell fish.” is a re-creation of a moment from a crazed dream?


About the Author

Joshua Deaner
joshuadeaner Providence, Rhode Island
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.”
