BIOGRAPHY

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. 

ARTISTS STATEMENT

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.
