Jonnie Begood

Posted by Charlotte Simmonds,

Jonnie Begood is a consummate kind of contemporary photographer. His photos sum up our collective lust for unstudied portraits of modern life – images without careful composition or colour grading but none-the-less loaded with narrative. His projects take him through Japan and Norway and Australia and America, capturing the fascinatingly mundane lives of an intercontinental brotherhood of breast-loving, beer-drinking, car-show-attending hedonists. It’s all so deliciously sinful. Jonnie’s portraits give us that chance to lurk, unassuming, in these moments of spontaneous strangeness.
