Joe Nafis

  Born and raised in Southern California, USA, Joe spent his youth playing sports, working on cars and exploring the great outdoors of California. Ever in search of a way to express himself, he finally picked up a camera in his late teens and began shooting. With a passion for capturing moments in ways unseen before and share them with the rest of the world, time-lapse photography imposed itself. Since then, he is constantly in search of a perspective that will transmit both the beauty and the speed of the world in which we live in. Joe’s work has recently been featured on BBC, Gizmodo, Mashable, Vice, CBS News, Shanghaiist and many others. When not exploring the world, Joe can usually be found in Shanghai, China where he has lived since 2009.
