A PORTRAIT OF THE ARTIST BY A YOUNG MAN

ABOUT THE PROJECT

“A Portrait of the Artist by a Young Man” is a project by the artist Josh C Wright comprising over 100 photographs of Britain’s Artists in their studios. Embarking on the project at the age of sixteen whilst still at school, Wright set about approaching the artists whose work he felt engaged by rather than surveying British art. Consequently, producing the project over a 4 year period the artist’s interest focusses towards a more concentrated pocket of younger artists, emphasising the surrounding artists influence on his own practice.
