01 MAGAZINE N0 10- PORTRAIT ISSUE/ FEATURE #3: INTERVIEW WITH PHOTOGRAPHER JONNIE CRAIG BY MICHAEL COOK
London-based photographer Jonnie Craig (born July 13th,1988) started shooting photographs at age nineteen. He has produced three volumes of personal work since his career as a photographer. His last published book “I’ll Kick You In The Head With My Energy Legs” documented the comradery between skateboarders, and contributed editorial content for Dazed & Confused, Vice, Bad Day Magazine and exhibited in multiple shows. Relying almost entirely on the quickness and versatility of the Nikon F5, the thematic trend in his work is an intimate study on how the reactions of light on film capture humanistic moments.- (Photos of Jonnie by Arianna Lago)
