Black Book Gallery feature Jon Furlong who is Shepard Fairey's photographer - exhibit will feature pictures of Shepard and his indoor/outdoor work.
Jonathan Furlong (b.1981) is a Southern California native, best classified as a self-taught lifestyle and street photographer. Most notably, Furlong has been a main component of documenting Shepard Fairey’s work and notorious installs behind the lens. In Furlong’s hyper-critical, high-anxiety mind, he finds ways to capture an essence of beauty and chaos in an authentic form. Similar to the environment of his immediate involvement with Shepard’s projects, his style can best be described as unpredictable, surreptitious, and pragmatic. While others attempt to recreate a meaning with a photo, Jon embraces what people may try and manipulate— the abominable truth, in his work. To him, the art of photography is preserving moments for eternity, so those who come across his work can see the past that set the future.
