Joshua Brockman Biography
Joshua Brockman is an accomplished writer and multimedia journalist whose stories and photographs have been published by The New York Times, NPR, and Smithsonian, among many other national publications and broadcast outlets.
Brockman always carries his camera on assignments to document the visual story that unfolds as part of his reportage. He has photographed portraits, landscapes, and streetscapes during extended journeys to the Galápagos Islands, Morocco, Alaska, and the Southwest.
Whether photographing Fritz Scholder in his compound and studio, Santa Fe’s Indian Market, or the race for the X Prize, Brockman relies on his camera lens to capture telling details. The images then serve as springboards.
His passion for visual storytelling began at an early age when he enrolled in photography classes, experimented with SLRs, Polaroid cameras, and darkroom techniques, and made documentary films about his family’s history.
Brockman is a graduate of Amherst College and the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism.
