Born in Detroit in 1957, Joseph Jurson studied Graphic Design and Photography and is a 1979 cum laude graduate of the University of Michigan School of Art.

Since leaving art school, Joseph has made photography a constant and serious part of his life.

A long-time resident of New York, he now makes Connecticut his home and finds particular inspiration in the familiar and well trod backyard paths of his Madison garden, the bustling streets and avenues of New York City, as well as the unique locations he diligently pursues in his travels back and forth across the country and when overseas.

He is continuously working to develop his technique and intensify the images that constantly engage him. His varied work experiences as a gardener, photographer's assistant, art director, and film producer have been a continuing adjunct to the constant of fine art photography.

His work is represented in four fine art/photo galleries in: California, Connecticut, Massachusetts, and Virginia. Additionally, his work can be found in numerous public and private collections.
