Christopher Jonas is a photographer of the Everyday who lives and works in London.
He concentrates on photographing people, un-posed, in their everyday surroundings. He has two main themes: classic street-style photography, much of it in monochrome, which he applies to his documentary work; and a series set in galleries, museums and cathedrals. Here his impressionistic style brings the buildings to life by emphasising how fulfilment of their purpose revolves around the people in them.
In all of his work Jonas uses only ambient light. He has a strong knack of anticipating an original street scene, some examples of which are displayed in the galleries on this site.
