Jonnie Craig (born July 13, 1988) is a British photographer who first emerged in the 2008 annual Vice Magazine photo issue,[1][self-published source] a publication he continues to contribute to regularly. In February 2009, Craig had his first homonymous book published with Mörel Books.[2][third-party source needed] Alongside this, he released Nothing In Particular, a zine given away with the first 50 copies of the Jonnie Craig book.

Craig spent two years as the picture editor of HUH.Magazine,.[1] In August 2010, Craig curated an exhibition at the Template:Scion Gallery in Los Angeles including artists like Peter Sutherland, Jerry Hsu and Patrick O'Dell,[3] among 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.[4] Shortly after the release of the film, Craig released his second book, I'll Kick You In The Head With My Energy Legs,[5][third-party source needed] 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.[6] The series was first exhibited alongside fellow artists Ed Templeton, Jerry Hsu and Kevin Long at the Steinsland Berliner Gallery in Stockholm, Sweden in 2010.[7][third-party source needed]
