John Fletcher (b.1954)

Born in 1954 in New Haven Connecticut, John Fletcher discovered photography through a series of chance events in his final year of public high school. After graduation and a brief hiatus from school he attended Ohio University where he studied photography and printmaking. Moving to New York City in 1979 he worked as a printmaker for a well known pop artist. A number of years later a solo bicycle trip across Europe led to a portfolio of black and white photographs that would mark his re-entry into the world of photography. Returning to New York City he began a career as a color darkroom technician that spanned more than twenty years. John presently has a commercial studio in West Paterson NJ where he does work for design firms, advertising agencies and corporations. His personal work has been featured in numerous group shows and is held in private collections.

Artist Statement:

"This body of work from Death Valley brings together my ongoing interest in the landscape with the (relatively) new process of digital printmaking. I had been waiting for the time when the permanence of the digital print would exceed the life expectancy of the more traditional Type C Print. I believe, and research indicates, that we have reached that point and have surpassed it. This has opened the door for photographers such as myself, to have unprecedented control over the color image at the printmaking stage.

The colors and forms present in these desert landscape are at once familiar to all who grew up on a diet of television westerns. Still they take on a beautiful yet somewhat forbidding tone in these color photographs. With very few exceptions, man does not live here.

Although the landscape is not my only subject matter, it is one that I often return to for it's moments of solitude and contemplation. It provides an opportunity to look out beyond ourselves, and perhaps to glimpse a larger truth."
