Jonathan Lovekin is a renowned London-based photographer. He has a weekly column with Nigel Slater in the Observer, and also worked with Slater on seven books including Kitchen Diaries, Tender and Real Food. Lovekin regularly collaborates with Yotam Ottolenghi and has just completed a fourth Ottolenghi book, Nopi. He also works with Martha Stewart, Bruno Loubet and Angela Hartnett.
Utilising natural light, Lovekin creates a cool colour palate that highlights the subtle complexities within fruit and vegetables. With his emphasis on minimal composition he creates still life arrangements that exude natural and seductive beauty.
Lovekin has an MA in Architectural History, Theory and Interpretation. In addition to still life photography, he also photographs landscapes and buildings, which have been exhibited at Flowers, Purdy Hicks, Cass School of Architecture, AOCF58-Associazione Operatori Culturali Flaminia 58 in Rome and Baltic Pavilion, Venice Architectural Biennale 2016.
