Beyond the Negative

Beyond the Negative is a collaborative visual research platform created with Tara Rowse that began out of Joanna’s PhD research. Launched on instagram it is designed to showcase the work of artist/photographers who push the boundaries of the photographic medium. Some of those boundaries are technical; some are narrative. Each are image makers who reveal our world to us in new and inspiring ways.
