Photographer John Flint strapped on a camera 50 years ago and has been snapping photos in America, Europe, and Asia ever since. He will be displaying his exhibit, Sculpted by Nature, at the library in June 2014.
Flint, who is a long time resident of Highland Park, has included photos from his trips to five national parks, Antelope Canyon, in Paige Arizona, Toadstools, Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument in Utah, Cathedral Rock in Sedona, Arizona, and Bryce Canyon National Park in Utah. The photos are very intense studies of the rock formations.
He has also included photos outside the country from Spis Castle near Kosice, Slovakia.
Previously, Flint exhibited photos he took during trips to Europe in the 1970s, 1980s, 1990s and a 2006 trip to Thailand and Cambodia where he spent time with the hill tribes of northern Thailand and also visited the temple ruins of Angkor Wat.
“A visit to Monet’s gardens at Giverny inspired a broadening of subject interests from landscapes to opportunistic shots,” Flint said. After four visits to Monet’s gardens at Giverny, Flint privately published a book of photographic essays.
