Josh Lu, born in Trinidad and Tobago spent two months in residence in London between Delfina Foundation, Autograph ABP and Gasworks. He received a BFA in Graphic Design at the Savannah School of Art and after graduating worked for a year at Alfalfa Studio in NY. He is living in Trinidad as a freelancer in branding, publications and design consultations. He has a keen interest in history and culture and is presently exploring Trinidad & Tobago’s folklore, redefining traditional interpretations by expanding cultural iconography and imagery. This has helped create a new dimension in the redefinition of Trinidad & Tobago’s society being relevant to the present global family while preserving its own cultural uniqueness and identity, transcending racial and social barriers. His work had been published in Asian Diasporic Visual Cultures and the Americas, ANNO book, See Me Here: A Survey of Contemporary Self-Portraits from the Caribbean, and The Draconian Switch e-magazine. Two of his photographic images appeared on the cover of TIME magazine.
