J. Flynn Newton is the alias for the german photographer J. F. Novotny, who made his first steps in taking pictures at the early age of 6 years - with his first camera, an Agfa Silette I which he still owns. Further photography became an important part in his life.
With his minimalistic series ColorLimited J. Flynn Novotny - well known for his CameraSelfies - celebrates the beauty of just one color.
Besides that J. Novotny wants to share a part of his work of the last 40 years with his main internet presence Light upon my Face: moments he captured on his journeys around the world, mainly Europe, North and South America.
Today J. Novotny lives in Germany where he – besides his activities as photographer – works as designer in his own agency vivia. Besides commissional works for german and european companies his works can be seen in regular exhibitions as well as selected internet platforms:
