Johnny Jungle: Man, Myth, Legend

Who is John Barton?

Most know him simply as Johnny Jungle. The Australian expat currently resides in remote Indonesia, living off generator-power and imported foods. He spends his days photographing the best waves in the Ments, and he’s become a bit of a legend in the process.

Working as a staff photographer for the Pitstop Hill Resort, Jonny has amassed a portfolio worthy of a Nobel Peace Prize. It’s no surprise that that’s he a multi-finalist in our Follow the Light photo competition. Check out this little vid to get a feel for the life of John Barton.
