Jonas was born in 1981 in Lörrach, Germany. He grew up in the countryside in the south of Germany. At a quite young age he already felt a deep fascination to perceive the beauty of the moment in a simple way and to share it somehow with his surrounding and the people around him. Photography became a great tool for him to document and share this perception and experiences it in a visual way. After finishing school, he decided to live in Costa Rica for six months. Fulfilling his dream of living by the ocean, he has become addicted to travel and discover the world. Then he moved to the Netherlands in 2004 where he started his studies at the Academy of Fine Arts in Maastricht. In 2008 he finished successfully his Bachelor of Fine Arts and lived after in Berlin, New York and Rio de Janeiro. In 2011 he moved back to Maastricht where he set up his own studio to have a ‘harbour’ where he can process what he has collected on the road through those years. Next to his photography he has started several musical projects and is collaborating with his brother Valentin Loellmann on a regular base becoming the ‘visual department’ of StudioValentinLoellmann. Currently (if he is not traveling) Jonas is still living in Maastricht, working on his photography, music and working on different projects with his brother.
