“A voice cannot carry the tongue and the lips that gave it wings.” - Gibran


Jon Lardizabal is an emerging artist whose interest in purposeful composition stems from his background in kinesiology. The discovery of artists such as Leonard Freed, René Magritte, and Elliott Erwitt would captivate Jon to the point of creating an in house darkroom. He has since received honors at local calls and shows such as the Athenaeum’s 23rd Annual Juried Show and The Studio Door’s 50 to Watch where his work has been described as technically sound as well as being reminiscent of imagery from Magnum photographers in the 1970’s/1980’s.

His current efforts are focused on refining his projects to take the next steps towards getting them published as photography books.
