is an award-winning photographer who has been taking pictures since the day his father handed him a Polaroid camera when he was just six years old. His passion for the art of photography has taken him from the edge of the Sahara Desert to the highlands of Guatemala, and taught him the simple beauty and true power of family and community in even the humblest of settings. His work has been published in both national and international magazines including The New York Times, The New Yorker and Camera Arts. And for over a decade he is proud to have donated his images to the renowned Seva Foundation, a nonprofit that for thirty years has compassionately served people around the world who are struggling for health, cultural survival and sustainable communities. Jon currently divides his time between his first love, the developing world, and his home in the Bay Area.
