Jonathan Lessuck (b. 1961) is a native New Yorker. Raised on the Upper West Side, he began taking pictures at the age of 10. In 2016, after spending 32 years as a New York City high school teacher, Jonathan developed his photography from a hobby to an avocation. Today he spends his time walking New York City and traveling the world, with his camera in hand, looking for that perfect shot.
Photography is a way for me to share my world with others. Whether it is walking down the streets of New York, or traveling to cities and towns around the world, I am fascinated by the people I meet and the culture that they have created. I capture what I find in my camera and bring those images to those who are also interested in exploring the world.
