GOOD Pictures: John Jones and Life's Little Details

Posted by Jen Mizgata and John Jones

Launch Slideshow

John Jones focuses on the sweet details of everyday life: Precious objects, forgotten corners, and old text are all revered in his work. He finds the irony in everyday life—an inspirational sign in the middle of a field, a smiling balloon waving wildly on a city street, a parking space declaring OCEAN MIST.

Jones, who lives and works in Baltimore, maintains a quiet grace in his portraits, capturing moments among friends and inserting levity into his portraits of strangers. His landscapes strike a balance, between texture and composition, city life and the wild beauty of nature.
