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 his own darkroom for the development and enlarging of his work. He has since received honors at local calls and shows such as the San Diego County Fair’s International Exhibition of Photography, the Athenaeum’s 23rd Annual Juried Show, and The Studio Door’s 50 to Watch in 2016. His work has been described as technically sound as well as being reminiscent of imagery from Magnum photographers in the 1970’s and 1980’s. His current efforts are focused on refining an ongoing project in order to take the next steps towards publishing his own photography book.
