Joshua Blevins Peck

I was born in Muskogee, Oklahoma and grew up in small-town & rural Oklahoma. Constantly battling wanderlust, I've lived in London, Seattle, Norman, Tulsa, Dallas, and New York City among numerous other places. I currently live in Los Angeles, California, where it never rains. I miss the rain. 

All photography was created with a variety of analogue film cameras [my two favorites are an Hasselblad 500 C/M and Nikon FM2] without any digital manipulation or cropping whatsoever. The images were made by a camera, not a computer. 

In 2011-2013 and in 2016, I participated in solo and group shows of my Dead Cinema and Fishing the Arkansas River projects. I was selected as an emerging artist by the Oklahoma Visual Arts Coalition in 2012. 

Through the years I've self-published zines, written about film and music in print and online, programmed movies at an historic movie theatre, worked as a librarian, and written a couple of unpublished novels that are waiting patiently to become cult classics. Or, drift into oblivion, whichever comes first. Lately, I've been creating cold, minimal electronic music with synthesizers and drum machines under the names of Monument and Telegrafs.
