Make Believe A photography project by Jonathan Higbee

The photos in “Make Believe” fuse subject and environment together to transform otherwise banal moments into mind-bending fantasy worlds. By inspiring disbelief and, hopefully, wonder, I ask the viewer to push their understanding of not only street photography but maybe even reality itself.

Jonathan Higbee is a New York based photographer and travel correspondent for a national magazine who “has channeled his passion and love for the city into his own colorful and poetic style.”. His work has been exhibited in New York, Los Angeles and in Germany.
