About 

My name is Jonathan Chesley. I live in Brooklyn, NY and  I graduated with a Masters in Architecture from the University of Oregon in 2011. 

I believe that architecture must be a cohesive project between designers, builders and researchers in order to play a positive role in the futures of urban, rural and wild ecologies.

I am both a practicing designer and architectural photographer.  If you would like to see more samples of my photographic work please contact me through the address below.
