Joshua’s series Ectopia in which he photographed prisoners in various gaols is perhaps Joshua’s more well known.

Rather than showing the prisoners in confined spaces, the photographs islolate them by showing them in open spaces such as sports pitches and courtyards or other unusual places that changes our perception of being a prisoner. Yet the the high walls, barbed wire clearly show these people are trapped and removed from society.

Joshua’s web site is a single page, so when it loads you will need to move around to she his photographs and the publications that have published his work.
