Jon Norris is a photojournalist/fashion photographer born and raised in Bethesda, Maryland.
Through a mix of portraits and street photography, Jon's photos are part of an ongoing project to document the universal human experience of diverse individuals in different cultures around the world.
The unparalleled beauty of human pathos shows in the people's faces, hands, the clothes that they wear, and their bodies. Like the weathered carvings of rivers against canyons, our lives can be tough and wearing. To be able to portray the human condition through the medium of photography has been a gift from the people of the countries where I have been welcomed. To quote Stephen DuPont, “Photos are given, not taken”.
Jon worked as first assistant to Vogue Thailand and US Correspondent to GQ Thailand, Mitchell Nguyen Mccormack. While assisting Mr. Mccormack, Jon also photographed celebrities and top models for DestinAsia Media Group. To this day, he remains great friends with Mitchell Mccormack..
Now 22, Jon travels between New York City, Los Angeles, and his hometown of Maryland where he is currently self-producing, photographing, and creating personal projects close to his heart.
Jon has had worked published by the American Association for the Advancement of Science (Science Advances), Squarespace, Leica, Destin Asia Media Group, Vulkan Magazine, LSTN Headphones, & Bethesda Magazine.
