“jonrev”

Chicago(ish) documentarian.
I’ve been photographing old places and things of everyday life since 2004.
I’ve been committing crimes of knowledge for over a decade, now.

I am a self-taught photographer exploiting both analog and digital formats.
I am a preservationist, but have no regard for lame “urban exploring” ethics.

I don’t like talking about myself.


The [jonrev Projects] signature work exhibits the final chapter for – and sometimes eulogizes – the many great buildings that have been lost by means of time, neglect, financial or political woes, stupidity and/or apathy. Our stories, visuals, artifacts and public exhibits serve as a published history of such places; paired with brutally honest commentary on the human element that built these places, and our disposable society bringing their destruction.
