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

First glance it has little meaning until you know the tittle and more about why the picture is set up how it is.

Commemorating Rosa Parks

Reminder of what times were like and we have come away from the events that occurred

Also reminder of what Rosa Parks did, how she was miss treated over a mere bus seat
