Jonathan Saunders

At an early age Mister Saunders fell asleep roadside in a pickup truck on the way to visit the site of the Battle at Gettysburg in Pennsylvania. While asleep he experienced a calling from the ghost of Timothy O’Sullivan in a dream. Since then, Saunders has continued to roam the country making images and telling stories, some of which are even true. He continues to suffer from insomnia to this day and often the results can be read online. Mister Saunders' hobbies include seeking out awkward social situations, losing English sporting clay tournaments and reading things he shouldn’t. His images sometimes appear in magazines like TIME, People and Forbes because he is occasionally paid to photograph strangers for money. Saunders would like nothing more then to photograph you, so send him an email, as he gets lonely.
