After completing a Masters Landscape Architecture at Auburn University and studying literature at Harvard, Jon’s work as a mountain guide in the San Juan mountains of southwest Colorado deeply influenced his work of photographing landscapes, how humans alter, and inhabit them yet are controlled by the hidden underlying geology.
His work often centers on the human condition in contested landscapes.
Involving topics of racism, suburban sprawl, public land use while attempting to find the beauty an strength in people under adverse circumstances. These are often coupled with drawings that analyze the landscape's geologic history.
"For me, the camera is a weapon; if used effectively it can capture a moment witnessing the resilience of human spirit while being a weapon to ignite change for social good." With Gratitude To All Those Met Along the Way - Jon Carroll
