Jon is a 37 year-old American photographer who is a permanent resident of Japan born in New York City and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area but firmly rooted in Tokyo, where he has lived for over 16 years. His main fields of photographic interest include travel/ adventure photography, architecture, landscapes, and Buddhist temples and Shinto shrines. The bulk of Jon’s artistic vision is primarily expressed through high dynamic range photography (HDR), which allows him to fully convey the true depth and feeling of his subject matter in an often hyper-real yet strikingly intimate fashion. His deep understanding of Japanese language and culture combined with his inherently keen Western eye provides him with a unique perspective which he infuses into his syncretic creations that blend East and West and meld the past, present, and future. A portion of his work is on semi-permanent exhibit exclusively at the Toast Gallery in Paris, France and he was selected to represent Japan in the 2009 edition of the Relais Et Chateaux Asia guidebook, an exclusive collection of images detailing 475 of the finest hotels and gourmet restaurants in 55 countries. He is also a Getty Images Contributor and was chosen as Imagekind’s Featured Artist for the month of November, 2008 and was also a Featured Artist in Issue #2 of BLUECANVAS magazine. Upcoming exhibits/projects include a collaboration with renowned Japan-based American photojournalist Everett Brown to detail the landscapes and historical sites of the Boso Peninsula sponsored by the Chiba Prefectural Government and an exhibit on Cambodia and Laos in March at the lounge space Amrta in Nishi-Azabu, Tokyo.
