When Cogan was little his bubby (grandmother) told him stories about being on the road.
His grandfather was in the army. So he and his wife could hop in a military plane and go anywhere in the world, as long as there was room.
His Bubby traveled the world and went many different places. From her travels she brought back trinkets and gave them to Cogan.
This gave him the inspiration to travel the world.
He studied anthropology, then fell in love with photography

“After graduating with a Masters degree in
anthropology, I ditched the ivory tower and took
to the road with a mission: to document
vanishing cultures and enrich our
understanding of social issues through
photography and mew media. My personal work revolves heavily around
faith, culture and environment” –Joshua
