Jon Lowenstein (USA, 1970) is a professional photographer specializing in long-term, in-depth projects that confront the realms of power, poverty, and violence. As a documentary photographer, he strives for unsparing clarity, and believes images make a critical contribution by revealing the subjects of history that lack voice. At the core of his work, and by his own admission, is a lighted love of people. An equally intractable believer in the arts, he asks those who consider photography unessential to picture a world with no pictures.
