Naturalia: Chronicle of Contemporary Ruins

Artist Profile

Jonk is a French photographer who travels in search of abandoned places. He has visited more than 1500 of these places in 50 countries in four continents. Over the years of photography, he is now strongly interested in the vast subject of abandonment: Nature taking over. This topic was imposed on him due to the ecologic consciousness that moved him since his youth and the strong message it carries: the question of the place of Man on Earth and its relationship with Nature. She is stronger, and whatever happens to Man, She will always be there. His first book Naturalia was released in 2018 and he is currently working on the third volume where Yann Arthus-Bertrand wrote the preface.
