Joe Briggs-Price (b.1988) is a British artist, born and raised in Newark-on-Trent, Nottinghamshire and now based in London. He studied Fine Art Photography at Manchester School of Art and his photographic work has been exhibited globally.
Joe’s work seeks to find the hidden gems within our society. He believes that community is the single most important thing that we possess and identifying and building communities is one of the major goals of his work.
His project Why Do We Fall?, recognised by both Creative Review and Magnum focuses on the intimate human side of elite sport and how athletes build themselves in to role models all whilst finding themselves at the same time. It is these longer term projects that allows him to delve underneath the surface to examine and explore community more intimately.
