Joe Ford is a visual artist with a passion for analogue and traditional photographic processes. She uses this medium to express and illuminate the ethereal dreamscapes of her imagination. She turns the everyday vision into a world of magical realism.
Joe experiments with the old photographic technique of Cyanotype to create beautiful swirling blue pieces onto fabric – her intrinsic connection to nature is very apparent in her work; soil, plants and sunlight are used to create her imagery.
Joe is also a creative workshop facilitator and has been delivering specialist workshops in photography, visual arts, print and bookmaking across Manchester for over 5 years. She is part of a shared studio at Islington Mill where she has been based for the last two years.
