About

Jo Confino invites people to see with fresh eyes and to feel more connected to themselves and the world around them. Living in New York, which often values glamour and instant gratification above all else, Confino notices objects that at first sight seem insignificant and worthless. By giving them attention and a monumental quality perhaps they will finally be loved. These photos are autobiographical in nature because they represent the artist’s own transformation as he matures into a person who knows his worth. As a journalist for the past 35 years, he is always searching for a deeper truth. His fascination with reflections in water, glass and other materials, offers a visual expression of this desire to look beyond the habitual way we perceive reality. While he has been taking photographs for many years, it is only since his arrival in New York three years ago that he has started exhibiting his work. He is currently executive editor, Impact & Innovation and Editorial Director of What’s Working, at the HuffPost. He develops long-term editorial projects that are based on social, environmental and economic justice and is a member of the senior leadership team. Previously he was an executive editor of the Guardian and chairman and editorial director of the Guardian Sustainable Business website. During his 23 years at the Guardian, he set up and managed a unique multi-stakeholder development project in the Ugandan village of Katine, and helped create the Guardian’s environment and global development website. He has completed an MSc in Responsibility and Business Practice at the University of Bath and is also a qualified executive coach and a trained facilitator. Jo chairs and facilitates major conferences around the world as well as more intimate workshops and events. Jo is an associate of Leaders’ Quest, a social enterprise that works with leaders to create a more equitable and sustainable world, and a facilitator at the Singularity University. He is an advisory board member of Parallax Press, a nonprofit publisher, founded and inspired by Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh, that publishes books on mindfulness in daily life and is a trustee of Theatre for a Change, whose purpose is the empowerment of women and girls, particularly in their sexual and reproductive health.
