Brief Description:

Jon is an urban photographer from Guildford and has exhibited throughout Surrey. In 2019 his work was selected for the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition from over 16000 entries and was sold before the exhibition opened to the public.



Statement / Description / Article:

American documentary photographer Elliott Erwitt once stated "Photography is an art of observation. It’s about finding something interesting in an ordinary place", and this is very much true to Jon’s approach as he challenges himself to find the hidden beauty in scenes that would otherwise go unnoticed.

Jon often creates an underlying narrative to his images with the inclusion of signs, notices and warnings, highlighting mans obsession with control—usually over an environment where often control has been lost or was never even there in the first place.
