Welcome to Jon Hrusa Photography
Jon Hrusa passed away on December 19, 2011. He will be sorely missed, both as a photographer and as a human being. Learn more.
For more than 25 years, Jon Hrusa told stories through a camera lens.
Based in Johannesburg, South Africa, Jon focused on documentary news, sport, humanitarian, and nature photography. His photographs appeared in National Geographic, the New York Times, TIME Magazine, the Los Angeles Times, The South China Morning Post and the Times of London, among many others internationally. Jon received numerous national and international awards, including a World Press Photo Award and the South African Press Photographer of the Year Award.
Jon was more than a photographer — he was a story-teller. He chose his stories carefully, examined them from every angle, and boiled them down to their visual essence.
Jon specialised in documentary photojournalism that makes a difference — taking an issue of social or political importance and communicating about that issue through pictures.
Over the course of his 25-year career, Jon photographed some of the most meaningful African news and sporting events in recent history, as well as environmental disasters, wildlife, and natural landscapes.
