Much of my work begins with subjects related with death, with the strange, the sick, the pathological, the withdrawn from the common. It appeals to the beauty that is within what strays from the mainstream taste, to the enjoyment of the morbid and the decadent, not because of a superficially provoking attitude, but because of the conviction that beauty does not have a fixed nor defined parameter, with every project being an attempt of making the reflection and direct contemplation of the human decadence sublime. I play with the duality, with the metaphor, the beauty of what is “ugly”Apr 14th, 2011
Passionate about all photography out there. Hoping to grow and learn and maybe help anyone else out if I can along the way. I live in the Southeastern part of the US but wanna see the world. :) I do sell prints of any of my work. Just contact me or visit my website. Thanks!Jan 7th, 2013
South African artist, Jono Dry, was born in Pretoria and raised in the beautiful seaside town of Hermanus, where he has lived, worked and exhibited for most of his young life. Entirely self taught, his unique photorealistic-surrealist works are usually created on a large scale, using graphite on paper or board. He currently lives in Cape Town, South Africa.Nov 23rd, 2012
