John Sexton

John Sexton (b. 1953) “With photography changing so rapidly today, we have an ever greater need for someone to uphold the tradition of commitment to the dignity and beauty of nature, and of the meaningful expression of true and positive values. John Sexton exemplifies this commitment in his images, and has done so for over forty-five years. To admire his work is not to regress in time, but to revel in the continuation of a mode of making images that uplifts us all and gives us hope.” – Peter C. Bunnell, McAlpin Professor of the History of Photography and Modern Art, Emeritus, Princeton University
