Josh Bilton (b. Hertfordshire, UK) is based in London. He studied at the London College of Communication, completing his BA in Photography in 2007. He graduated with an MA in Photography in 2010 from the Royal College of Art. His practice in photography and video shifts between performance and documentary, often constructing scenarios that both depict and engender subjective encounters with our environment and its histories. His latest work Undersong consists of an immersive three-screen video installation and self- guided sound and poetry walk that delves into the semiotics of Portland stone, from its geological origins to its heralded place in the construction of British sovereign identity.
Bilton is currently lead tutor in Photography at the Royal Drawing School and an Associate Lecturer at the London College of Communication. His work has been shown in the UK, as well as Europe and USA. Recent exhibitions and projects include Doremi residency & exhibition, Coniston, Lake District 2017; Workshops for Open House Cambridge with Kettle’s Yard & Harold Offeh, Cambridge 2017; Unseen Photo Fair, Thread count by Der Greif, Amsterdam 2017; Space Studio, London 2016; The Photographer’s Gallery, London (2014); L’Aterlier KSR, Berlin (2014); and Rosphoto, St Petersburg (2013).
