I really enjoyed Jonathan’s lecture today. He managed to explain very well his work, techniques and style. He also explained very well why he chose to work with that style in a way that there were not many to questions left to ask. He said very interesting things about the industry and he talk about the anorexic models which is a big issue and how can we change it. Overall he gave a lot of information and it was a very nice talk.
He is a great photographer and it would be lovely to have him again for a workshop if possible.
