Joshua Tann is a photographer residing in California.  His childhood goal to be an architect was derailed by life circumstances, but his love and interest in architecture continued throughout his life. In 2011 photography became his medium to express this passion, despite his profession as a psychotherapist. He received a certificate in Professional Photography from the New York Institute of Photography. He also received a Master’s degree in Clinical Psychology from Pepperdine University (Malibu, California) as his formal education.

His creative process started every time he is drawn to a certain scene, event or object. Almost every image he took involved a building or a structure as the main object or background. This is consistent to his interest in architecture and how humanity interact with their environment, particularly the surrounding structures and buildings. Aesthetics will always be a factor during the first few seconds of selecting an image, followed by other factors, such as the relationships between lighting and structures or angles and environment. A final photograph would eventually emerge from this process as the expression of his creative interpretation of that image with the hope of inspiring the viewing public.

He had shown his work in several curated local and international exhibitions. He had exhibited at Hellada Gallery in Long Beach, the Irvine Fine Arts Center, LA Artcore in Los Angeles, Los Angeles Center for Digital Art, Los Angeles Art Association/Gallery 825, Long Angeles Center of Photography, Black Box Gallery in Portland, OR, The Center for Fine Art Photography in Fort Collins, CO, Praxis Gallery in Minneapolis, MN, PH21 Gallery in Budapest, 5thBase Gallery in London, ICA Gallery in Tokyo and PAKS Gallery at the International Art Fair in Carrousel du Louvre, Paris. He was also selected by several international photography competitions for their awards.
