About Me

Jonathan Oron: film photographer

I started photographing around the age of nine. One day, on my way back from school I saw this golden coloured goose by a town canal. I thought it was so extraordinary and was determined to capture it. I ran back to my house and grabbed the family camera, a Fuji compact camera that worked on filmroll. I managed to get the shot and was so eager to get the roll developed. That feeling of anticipation, mystery and excitement never left me and is the reason why I am a film photographer today.

I received my second camera, a SLR vintage Praktika, from my aunt, who had studied at art academy. It was a very special moment for me, because my aunt got the camera from my grandfather who I was very close to. She showed me the basics and I started travelling with it everywhere. During this time I began conceptualising the limited shots I had and created little series for myself, which I shared with friends and family.

It wasn’t until I had my first exhibition that I finally realized that I had something special and that through photography I could do what I have always dreamed of doing; making my mark on the world.
