Freelance photographer Jonathan Barth is based in New York City. His work has appeared in publications such as Newsweek, Forbes, New York Magazine, Business Week, Food and Wine, the TV Guide, the Boston Globe, the New York Times and dozens of foreign publications.
Barth's professional career began as an intern at the Smithsonian Institution's Office of Photography in Washington DC. After returning to his home town, Salt Lake City, he worked as an assistant to a commercial and fashion photographer. Later he became a staff photographer at the Daily Utah Chronicle - eventually becoming head photographer and photo editor.
In an effort to move into international work, Barth joined the US Peace Corps. For two years he lived in Osh, Kyrgyzstan and worked as a media consultant and English teacher at a journalism training center. While learning Russian, he photographed the people of this former Soviet republic - including refugees for the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees. His personal collection of photos combined with those he did for the UNHCR make up the pages found in the Kyrgyzstan section of this web site.
After moving to New York City in 1997, Barth freelanced for two and a half years for the New York Daily News. Currently his focus is magazine editorial photography.
Barth is a graduate of the University of Utah with a double BA in Middle East Studies/Arabic and Political Science/International Relations.
