BIO

Jónatan Prospero, also known as Jón Prosper, is an New York City born Photographer and Director. In his adolescent years, Jón’s obsession with cinema and art was heavily influenced by his family -all carrying an artistic form of self expression. Waking up to his parents morning bolero singing rituals and reading biblical stories were milestones to his obsession with story-telling. At 10 years old, Jón’s sister Judith -poet and winner of the Def Jam Poetry Slam, pushed Jón to recite poems at the Nuyorican Poets Cafe. From then on, Jón learned to use art as a way to cope with middle/high school bullying. Coupled with his Bachelors degree in International Studies, Jón’s anthropological approach is one element to his work; drawing many influences from his love for poetry, untouched beauty, paintings, and national geographic portraiture.
