He has captured everything from traditional pub games, glimpses of humour to the many local characters who regularly frequent the local establishments.
Joe said many Preston pubs have permanently closed, which means the images will be poignant in the future.
Joseph takes a genuine interest in the people he photographs, and it comes across in the warmth that emanates from the portraits on display.
