Joel Redman (b. 1974) is a contemporary artist whose work focuses on communities, climate change and the environment. He works nationally and internationally, and this search for subjects has led him around the world, from the deserts of North America and South-American rainforests to the Arctic Circle or the Highlands of Scotland.


His work considers landscapes and the people who inhabit them, revealing this complex relationship through a combination of intimate detail and sweeping panorama.   


Joel’s photographs have been exhibited at the National Portrait Gallery and the Royal Academy of Arts and he was shortlisted for the International Photographer of the year at the Lucie Awards.


He currently lives in South West England, with his partner and two sons.
