New Interview by Greg Jones featured on our sister blog In The In-Between with photographer Josh Poehlein.
Josh Poehlein is a Chicago-based artist currently pursuing his MFA from Columbia College Chicago. He received his BFA from Rochester Institute of Technology in Rochester, NY in 2007. His work has been exhibited at Gallery R in Rochester NY, the Object Not Found Project Room in Mexico City, the Les Rencontres D’Arles Photographie in Arles, France, and most recently at the FotoMuseum in Antwerp, Belgium.
“ When I’m working on the pieces I tend to forget that they are fundamentally lens-based; I treat them like drawings or paintings even. In the end though, I think what gives them weight is that they are based in some sort of reality, no matter how distant.”
