Josh Bilton (b. Hertfordshire, UK) is based in London.  He studied at the London College of Communication, completing his BA in Photography in 2007. He graduated with an MA in Photography in 2010 from the Royal College of Art. His practice in photography and video shifts between performance and documentary, often constructing scenarios that both depict and engender subjective encounters with our environment and its histories. 

Bilton’s latest work Undersong explores the Isle of Portland in Dorset.  The Island is famous for its quarried Limestone, a rock formed from the skeletons of marine microorganisms.   The work consists of an immersive three-screen video installation, photographs and a self-guided sound and poetry walk that delves into the semiotics of Portland stone, from its geological origins to its heralded place in the construction of British sovereign identity.
