Art and photography has been Joe Greene’s life. He started out painting, then he picked up a camera because he couldn't get his ideas onto the canvas fast enough.
At 15 and entirely self-taught, Greene became the yearbook photographer for a summer camp, responsible for producing hundreds of editorial style images for an 80 page yearbook. At 17, he apprenticed with an artist who painted paintings for furniture stores, he learned how to paint the same painting over and over again. At 20, Greene was awarded honors at Mass College of Art as a dual major in graphic design and photography.
Recent film photography projects include an 8 year study of the biker lifestyle, shooting bikes, bikers and the women who love them. He has photographed fairs, carnival side shows and rides for 5 years and has traveled throughout New England and remote areas of Canada photographing iconic Lobster Fishermen (and women). Greene is currently photographing Scrap, a photo essay about recycled materials and Concealed, a series of still life images featuring toy guns.
