As a veteran photojournalist, Jonathan Alcorn has acquired some impressive clients on his resume including Reuters, Bloomberg, Getty Images and the New York Times, among many more. He covered the 1994 Northridge earthquake, and his photos of the disaster lead the LA Times' special edition that earned a Pulitzer Prize.
He's spent more than 20 years covering breaking news, from rescues to riots, all while the worlds of journalism and photography have rapidly shifted. In addition to news coverage, he's devoted time to long term projects including a look into life at a home for Alzheimer's patients. Whether at the scene of a natural disaster or on a beach in his home of Los Angeles, Alcorn's curiosity and compassion echo throughout his work.
