Interview by Matthew Broadhead –
I met Joe Pettet-Smith whilst we were both undergraduates studying photography in Brighton, and we’ve kept in touch since I graduated in 2016. He always struck me as motivated and ambitious, with an intellectual underpinning to his work, so his rapid progress in the industry came as no surprise.
A photograph from his graduate body of work Preparations for the Worst Case Scenario was selected as runner up in the single image category at the British Journal of Photography’s Breakthrough Awards. More recently he has won print commissions from Financial Times Weekend and Saturday Telegraph Magazine.
