This is the beginning of a journey
and it’s only 1% finished.
to the first version of what will soon be the official portfolio page, online print shop and photography blog of Jonny Jelinek: A self-taught, passionate photographer from Vienna, who recently moved to an island, not only to start a new life, but also to follow his heart and make his passion a profession!
After working as a social media manager in my own online marketing agency for many years and living a typical (successful but) stressful city life, I slowly began to realise that I need to change something, or everything. Being burned out and knowing how depression feels like, I escaped into the tranquility of a quiet garden, in a small town at the beach, on the beautiful island of Menorca and decided to leave my old life behind. Surrounded by nature and serenity, with a lot of time to practice mindfulness and my biggest passion photography, I asked myself a simple question:
“If you would die tomorrow,
what would you wish to have been known for?”
Looking at my unreleased photo archive of around 500.000 images the answer was already there. This is it.
“…the famous photographer, who
made a difference in the world with
his artistic and mindful photography.“
Dream big, they said. So to give this statement a realistic chance to come true, starting in 2019 I will put my art and myself out there, one photo at a time.

The photos above are just a small glimpse of what to expect: A visual journey through 12+ years of photography including selected artworks created while living in, or just wandering through, beautiful places like Vienna and the rural areas of Austria, the vineyards of the german Rhinegau, spanish cities like Barcelona or Valencia, perfect paradises like Bali, the Seychelles or Boracay, and last but not least, the breath-taking nature and tranquility of “the island I call home”, Menorca.
