Justin Barton is based in Kennington, London in the UK.
His work focuses primarily on identity and heritage. Seeking a deeper understanding of history he examines the objects and people in detail by photographing small elements and using the reflection of today to glean unusual perspectives on the past.
This year he won his third International Photography Award (IPA) in 5 years, he was selected for the Belfast Photo Festival and was shortlisted for the KLPA Portrait award. In 2013 he won the Lucie Foundation Emerging Photographer Scholarship and the Still life section at the International Color Awards. He was also a finalist at the Organ Vida Photo Festival and was exhibited at the Copenhagen Photo Festival. He was also a finalist and a ‘jurors pick’ (Thomas Dworzak) in Photostory 2012.
He is a co-founder and regular contributor to 'Deepsleep' the online magazine and collective devoted to contemporary art photography.
