Richard Ian Gosnold is a photographic artist based in Northern Ireland. His practice is driven by a desire to examine the human condition.

His first photobook 'It Starts With Silence' was published in 2021 by Kehrer Verlag.

The Library Project in Dublin published three printed  volumes from his work ‘Paradise Lost’, in 2020, as part of their TLP Editions  series. 

After graduating from Ulster University with an MFA, he  has  been the recipient of awards from the Arts Council of Northern Ireland  and was shortlisted for the Unseen Photobook Award, Amsterdam in 2019. 

Gosnold is a member of the Belfast Photo Factory collective,  where he organises regular photobook discussion groups designed to celebrate printed matter and to promote an  ongoing discourse around the medium.
