Josh Adam Jones - United Arab Emirates

Josh Adam Jones uses photography to communicate stories about often misrepresented places and those who live there. From the ageing Irish populations of UK towns and cities to the expatriate communities in the Middle Eastern, Josh aims to facilitate conversations about identity, home and interculturalism through his work. Since graduating in 2018 from UWE (Bristol), Josh has gone on to achieve agency representation with Lisa Pritchard Agency (LPA Futures), been commissioned by British Council & Ffotogallery for a multinational project and is now making new work as part of the Photography Masters course at UWE (Bristol).

What was it that drew you to the Star Wars Families commission?

My brother (who is also called Luke) and I used to play out the lightsaber scenes simultaneously with the films in the background on TV. These are really fond memories for me, especially as he now lives in Australia, so I don’t see him that much. Of course, he was always Luke. I used to remember saying, “Luke. I am your father.” This line is probably the most well-known but also the most misused. The actual quote is: “No, I am your father.”
