Josephine Pryde is an artist known primarily for her work with photography, though she often presents work with sculptural elements.

Pryde learns from different photographic conventions, for example from publicity or advertising images, where seductive and highly staged, high resolution images evoke and respond to desire.

She draws on visual languages, responding to ideas and larger conceptual frameworks such as the history of photography and the moving image, through details, references, or the juxtaposition of different works.
