Jonathan Meter is a freelance photographer and artist with a keen insight into the human spirit and a unique perspective on the world around him. Jonathan’s vision allows him to see the potential in the mundane and elicit beauty, movement and life from the unexpected. The abstract images Jonathan creates illustrate the integration of music into his work, as he uses rhythm and melody to channel the essence of an object and capture its energy in a still image. Through his photographic art, Jonathan tells his own story, conveying his creative ideas and understanding of the world through the use of color, light and rhythm.
Jonathan’s work is driven by his passion for illuminating his subjects; past, present and future in a single image. His open mind and natural thoughtfulness allow him to evoke his subjects; genuine emotions and essential personalities in both posed and candid shots. Fascinated by the relationship between photographer and subject, Jonathan seeks to capture his subjects in the context of their life history, and thereby communicate that history to others through his work. Jonathan grew up in Philadelphia, PA and currently lives in New York City, exploring the life, light and energy of the city and its people.
