Jonas Head

ABOUT

From his adolescent deep dives in the astonishing Magnum Photos archives, Jonas found his calling handling prints by the agency’s legends.

It instilled a love for storytelling in him, and a few years later that love took him to Russia. 2006 saw the release of his first book “Satellites - photographs from the fringes of the Soviet Union”.

What followed is simply spectacular photography from one of Norways most interesting storytellers. Jonas is behind several books and editorial series for National Geographic Magazine, Newsweek, The Sunday Times Magazine as well as an abundance of commercial works.

His lates book, exhibition and documentary series, “The Last Testament”, chronicles seven men around the world who claim to be the Second Coming of Jesus Christ. The first episode is available for streaming for Norwegian viewers right now at NRK

Alas, Jonas isn’t one of the seven aforementioned subjects. But we dare say he’s indeed one of the monoliths in his industry.
