Jonathan V Tan

"My way of telling every living being out there to appreciate the beauty of our world - through my photography, through my pictures" Given the privilege of growing up on the island of North Borneo with memories of tropical rainforests and picturesque islands, Jonathan has had the opportunity of witnessing the diversity of nature at its best and most beautiful. His close encounters with wildlife later in life propelled him to transform images of such encounters into works of art. He believes that this invaluable privilege encourages a better appreciation of nature, which he strives to share with others. Jonathan further believes that spectacle sights are thoroughly wasted when not cherished or remembered. Most of his budding years were spent studying in Australia where he was able to explore the great island’s landscapes with trips to panoramic sites. These excursions prompted his venture into understanding the use of colors, tones, and forms in photography. The need to convey his feelings and emotions from his three dimensional journeys on prints and canvases is what he believes to be the role of every photographer. Jonathan is based in Sandakan, Sabah with two galleries, showcasing his work in Sandakan and Kota Kinabalu. Capturing The Image Growing up in Borneo has given Jonathan the upper hand in knowing the locales of the island. He specializes in capturing nature and landscapes of areas, not merely within Borneo but other parts of the world as well, such as Australia, United States and Europe. His research, precision and timing in capturing images are qualities that make his photographs uniquely his. Through his pictures, Jonathan hopes for people to not only be able to witness Borneo in a different light from the confines of their homes but also appreciate the diversity of the island and all that it has to offer.
