Joey Phoenix is a Salem-MA based portrait photographer with a fascination with the mythological and the surreal. They have spent the last three years working on their photo project – The Olympians – a series which focuses on archetypes found in Greek myth and the inherent magic of every human being.
Joey picked up a camera for the first time in 2011 as a way to add visual oomph to articles and blog posts, only to realize soon afterwards that the camera was becoming part of their arm. Since surgical removal wasn’t a possibility, they decided to roll with it.
With a deep love of well crafted stories and visual narratives, Joey experimented a great deal in the early years in a project called The Evolution of Time - a concept based photo series exploring the relationship between humans and temporal reality.
They also spends a lot of time photographing faeries in the wild.
In addition to their fine art portrait and concept art, Joey is also for hire for:
Commercial Portraits (Lifestyle • Editorial • Pets)
Events of a Creative or Historical Nature
In addition to these visual offerings, Joey has been, and will always be, a writer first. They are currently working on their first book – which has much to do with their life as an athlete prior to realizing they were, in fact, an artist. If you would like to read some of the stuff they’ve written up to now, check out the Writings and Publications page. Or just go read the Blog.
When Joey is not photographing things that interest them, filming fire spinners, or writing about the magic of human existence, you can probably find them volunteering at MSPCA at Nevins Farm (certified goat cuddler and guinea pig fashion photographer), making noise (some might call it music), setting up awesome light shows with Retonica, or with their nose stuck in a book.
