Joanne Coates // Freelance Photographer & Image maker // UK Based 

Narrative work that is both poetic and practical with a strong focus on uncovering the realities behind social issues. My work has close connections with class and a unique portrayal of the North. 

Exhibited at The Royal Albert Hall, Somerset House, London Print Studio, BFI Southbank,  Warrington Museum & Art Gallery, Aberystwyth Arts Centre  and more. 

" My image-making is often a dance with self-doubt, both poetic and practical. I use the medium of photography to translate visual stories that lie somewhere between myth, reality and the everyday. "
