Joseph Cultice

Artist's Website


Joseph Cultice began his photography career as a young rock ‘n roll-obsessed teen in Phoenix, Arizona where he was inspired by his floor-to-ceiling KISS and David Bowie posters and lots of mescaline. He moved to New York City in 1989 and immediately began making an international name for himself as one of the few leading music photographers whose wide range of talents has allowed him to cross over into the celebrity and fashion fields.

Joseph Cultice loves: George Carlin, the Simpson’s, loud Electro New wave music, torturing people on Facebook with non-sequiturs, peanut butter, Kahlua and coffee, biking in Amsterdam, sunrises, sunsets, long walks on the beach, swimming with his son, 70’s Playboys,  Nick Knight, Harry Potter, 2001 Space Odyssey, Blue Velvet, Showgirls, Abba, Metallica, Black Keys, Radio Head, Empire of the Sun, red neon lights, guacamole, waking up and meditating, the smell of coffee in the morning, conversations about f-stops, Alexander McQueen, Madonna, Peaches, St. Martin, salmon roe, his son NOMI STAR, Klaus Nomi, New York in the 80’s and 90's, other people who hate jazz, double features, the Prisoner, and his mom and dad.

Joseph now calls Los Angeles home and resides in Echo Park where he is a slave to his cat.
