Pangodak #1: Jonathan Jurilla

Oct 10, 2011 by

…these are portraits of battered women. Contrasting portraits: one shows the truly lamentable situation of battered wives while one shows the strength/power of the woman in the midst of their suffering. Reminds me of Geena Davis in the film, ‘Thelma and Louise’… – Jonathan Jurilla

Jonathan Jurilla considers himself as an amateur photographer. He only started using the DSLR this year ( February 2011 ) but he’s had a long experience with Photoshop. He considers himself a digital artist since he embraces the power of Photoshop in producing his work. He does a lot of post-processing and he is not ashamed about it. This is his view of the real — it’s always hyper-real. Jonathan quotes the famous photographer Henri Cartier-Bresson: ‘fact is boring’. It is one’s point of view that makes fact interesting. In the world of the Theater, he identifies his art with that of Bertolt Brecht: ‘Epic Theater’

Jonathan wishes to thank Niccolo Cosme for introducing him to the power of conceptual photography.
