Biography

Fine Art Documentarian Jon Luvelli’s black-and-white images merge street photography with fine art photography. His work is most often made up of images that depict rural areas, giving us glimpses of the scenes and individuals that comprise such communities. The stark, achromatic images are highly emotive, and the dramatic lighting and high-contrast settings create fascinating, unexpected stories. The artist can be compared to American documentarians such as Robert Frank, William Eggleston, Diane Arbus, Walker Evans, and Weegee, but Luvelli approaches the medium with a uniquely modern and narrative bent. The photographs, which are never staged or set up in any way, depict interesting and often overlooked people and vistas, rendering them with a unique dignity. Luvelli has also done commercial work for Nike, Universal, and Warner Brothers.
