Joan Byrne’s photography is raw and honest with a generous helping of the absurd.

I am a documentary photographer with a particular focus on Peckham. I respond to the poignancy and joy of our ‘three score and ten’. As well as street life, I have photographed in launderettes, at local cemeteries, mirrored butchers and, a particular love of mine, developed a series of photos of mannequins. Please refer to the Publications section to see published work. 

Recently, I have been creating ‘postcard interventions’ – subverting classic art images with collage (see examples below). 

I am one of a triangle of poets. We are called the Rye Poets. Each of us is also an artist and member of SLWA. Occasionally we perform at South London Women Artists’ exhibitions where we give voice to the theme of the art on show.
