Jo Broughton

 

Jo Broughton holds a BA in Editorial, Fashion and Advertising Photography from Kent Institute of Art and Design.

When she moved to London, having secured work as an assistant in a photographer’s studio, she had no idea what kind of photography this was.  Only on arriving at the studio did she realised the studio produced both films and still photography for magazines, all of it pornographic. Broughton’s time at the studio seems an indelible mark, as almost all her work was inspired by it.

After working for magazines such as Marie Claire, The Observer and The Sunday Times, she then studied an MA in Fine Art Photography at the Royal College of Art.

Jo Broughton’s mission as an artist is to record and present tangible evidence of the emotional within human experience.

In her series Empty Porn Sets, by recording spaces left behind after the human activity, she makes a strong statement against a voyeuristic or judgemental look at the processes of making porn, withdrawing from any moral discourse. The emptiness depicted has the effect of mainlining emotional reverb into the space.
