Josephine Pryde (*1967 in Alnwick, UK) studied at Wimbledon School of Art and at Central St. Martins, both in London. Known primarily for her photographic work, she has become a major figure in the recuperation of photography as a key critical discipline in the field of contemporary art. Josephine Pryde has developed a singular style of image making that responds to methods and ideas from, amongst other sources, advertising, fashion and portrait photography.
