Jo Underhill is a freelance photographer based in Hitchin, Hertfordshire and works all over the UK. Her background is in architectural photography but since 2019 she has been working with art galleries, curators and artists to photograph exhibitions, public art installations and artists studios. Jo enjoys exploring and documenting exhibition installations. Her photography focuses on the art and the relationship within the space it is exhibited, the dialogue between the artwork and how people interact with the art within the space.
She has worked with a number of clients including White Arkitekter, If_Do Architects, Jamie Fobert Architects, Kettle's Yard, Serpentine Gallery, The Heong Gallery, The Women's Art Collection and Broadway Gallery. Jo has had her images featured in a number of books, exhibition catalogues and publications including The Architects' Journal, Dezeen, Wallpaper and Ceramic Review.
She has a passion for concrete and brutalist architecture which has lead her over the last 12 years to work on an ongoing personal project photographing brutalist buildings across the UK. In 2021 Jo self published her Ode to Welbeck project as a limited edition photography book designed by Stanley James Press and in 2022 self published her second limited edition photography book, Beautiful Brutalism again designed by Stanley James Press.
