Jonas Daley is a freelance photographer from China and used to work as a visual director and production designer. A modified infrared camera would be his most loyal partner on a travel. He often observes the world via the infrared camera viewfinder. Fantastic colors have brought him great inspirations for creation. Jonas Daley integrated the ideas inspired from observation into his own creation, finally giving birth to such a magical realism style: a distinctive and independent color that uses rich imagination and artistic exaggeration to stage “special performance” of real life and turn the reality into a kind of “magical reality”. For Jonas Daley, that magical reality is his sustenance of ideal beauty and dreams!

Jonas Daley loves outdoor sports and traveling. The taking of pictures often risk him on the edge of life. The harsh geographical environment and tough challenges often pose a test on his physical fitness and mental will.
