John Eaton was born and raised in England, but has been living in California since the late 1980’s and is now retired. His photographic skills are self-taught through decades of patience and practice following a first experience with photography back in 1958 when on a school trip to Brussels and Paris using his father’s Kodak camera. Black and white photography has always been John’s first love — the simplicity, elegance, drama, timeliness and richness that it can bring to an image — the contrasts between light and dark, areas of luminance and tonality, and the abstractions of lines, shapes and forms: that “special” quality that heightens the emotion and impact of the image.
John has received several national and international awards for his work, including 1st prizes in architecture from the Pollux Awards, International Photography Awards (IPA), and American Aperture Awards, and Finalist in the Grand Prix de la Découverte, Paris, for his work on English Medieval Cathedrals. His work has been selected for many juried exhibitions and he has had solo exhibitions in Palo Alto and Pacific Grove, and is included in the collection at Bibliothèque Nationale, Paris.
