Jonas Unger takes photos that make you feel genuinely happy

Posted by Liv Siddall,

Jonas Unger’s images, to me, are the photographic equivalent of an unexpected cheeseboard. You weren’t prepared for such a rare and wonderful treat, and the contents are more delicious and well crafted than you could ever imagine. From a perspiring Gérard Depardieu rattling through the french countryside on a moped, to a girl acting out the story of Apollo and Daphne with an unassuming statue, these images almost deserve entire soundtracks to themselves. No, scrap that, each image deserves its own film. Enough rambling, just enjoy the photographs below.
