Christopher Jonas is a photographer of the Everyday based in London.
He concentrates on photographing people, unposed, in their everyday surroundings. He has built his documentary practice from long experience as a street photographer. He uses a single 50mm manual focus lens and works exclusively in ambient light. Jonas has a strong preference for monochrome, unless colour is an essential part of the story. On site, he works close in but silently, with no distraction from the working day of those in his viewfinder. His images are presented square in order subtly to guide the eye of the viewer.
His strong knack of anticipating an original street scene comes through in the galleries on this site.
