Jonnie Craig (born July 13, 1988) is a British photographer who first emerged in the 2008 annual Vice Magazine photo issue,[1] a publication he continues to contribute to regularly. In February 2009, Craig had his first untitled book published with Mörel books.[2] Alongside this, he released an additional body of work entitled Nothing In Particular, a zine given away with the first 50 copies of the untitled book. Having spent two years as the picture editor of HUH.Magazine,[3] Craig is now the picture editor of Stranded Magazine.[4] In August 2010, Craig curated an exhibition at the Scion Gallery in Los Angeles including artists like Peter Sutherland, Jerry Hsu and Patrick O'Dell,[5] among numerous others. April 2012 saw the release of Craig's first film work, entitled IKYITHWMEL, a short film about skateboarding which was first broadcast on UK terrestrial television station Channel 4.[6] Shortly after the release of the film, Craig released his second major book, I'll Kick You In The Head With My Energy Legs,[7] through Dokument Press, a Swedish based art book publisher. The book focusses on the lives of a group of skateboarders. It doesn't, however, cover the act of skateboarding itself.[8] The series was first exhibited alongside fellow artists Ed Templeton, Jerry Hsu and Kevin Long[9] at the Steinsland Berliner Gallery in Stockholm, Sweden in 2010.
