The role between subject and observer is blurred. Images form organically, rejecting the manufactured and mechanical as scenes develop naturally, almost accidentally as if chance led the viewer. Deriving inspiration from natural moments of life occurring around him, Jon finds ways to layer modern life with faded past.
Though a photographer and video director by trade, Jonathan’s work delves into the grit of life, stirring a wistful melancholy in each of his pieces. His pieces are playful and emphasize the profound in single, simple moments.
Breathing life into old images that have been discarded, collecting dust, never be used again, Jon finds a place in the future that these images were never meant to see. These modern-vintage collages combine 1950′s magazine clipping with his contemporary photographs that exploit parallels between subjects. The juxtaposition of clippings and photos revives a strong sense of nostalgia intertwined with hope.
