Jon Genius - Photographer

American Nomad

Artist Statement:

I used to be afraid of photographing people, my first photographs were of inanimate objects. I have grown to learn that there is an unspoken agreement that exists between the photographer and their subject. I have been captivated by the world around me, which has lead me to record and document it. Like Ansel Adams, “When words become unclear, I shall focus with photographs. When images become inadequate, I shall be content with silence.” Whether a still image or a motion picture, the camera is a loaded gun and I seek to become a master marksman who takes care to avoid misuse of his weapon.

Genius was one of the artists in the anniversary group exhibition Do You Hear Us?
